Kathy Guthrie has been recognized as College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Staff of the Month for July 2019. Guthrie joined the CWI community in September 2009 as a work study student. She is currently a Lab Materials Specialist for Math and Sciences – a job she loves. After almost ten years in this position, she is the longest working employee of the sciences lab support staff.
Guthrie graduated from CWI with her Anthropology and Geography degrees in 2016. Although she is no longer a student, she still enjoys driving Anthropology Club students around in the College’s vans on their outings. A true explorer at heart, she enjoys paddle boarding, kayaking, and fishing. A new and noteworthy adventure for Guthrie is a freak, chance encounter resulting in rescuing and raising a Maine Coon kitten, Frankie, with her partner, Jaimie. Frankie adds to their list of adored pets including Lucy, the pibble (Pitbull), and Lillian, the Dalmatian – all of which are camping enthusiasts.
Please join us in congratulating Kathy on this accomplishment!
