Statement from President Young on death of Sen. Scott White

University of Washington

The following statement is from University of Washington President Michael K. Young:

“We are all in shock at the news of Scott’s death. It is just devastating. Our hearts and deep sympathies go out to Alison and their children. Scott was a bright light in Olympia, a skilled legislator and dedicated public servant who always put the interests and well-being of citizens above everything else. He was also an exceptional colleague in our University planning and budgeting office and taught in our Evans School of Public Affairs. We will miss him greatly. It is a very sad day.”
