Executive vice president for finance and administration named


Leslie Brunelli will be the new executive vice president for finance and administration and chief financial officer at Washington State University. With more than 25 years of higher education experience, Brunelli comes to WSU from the University of Denver, where she served as the senior vice chancellor for business and financial affairs. Brunelli’s first day in the new role will be May 1. Brunelli succeeds Stacy Pearson, who was set to retire from WSU in December 2022. Pearson has since delayed her retirement to Feb. 3 to ensure a successful transition as Brunelli begins the onboarding process. "We are thrilled to welcome Leslie to the Cougar community," said WSU System President Kirk Schulz. "As a seasoned leader with experience at a range of public and private institutions, Leslie has a unique perspective and a thorough understanding of financial management and university operations. Her guidance will be invaluable as we look to the future of WSU."

Kamie Ethridge agrees to contract extension with Washington State


In her short time in charge, Kamie Ethridge has taken the WSU women’s basketball program to places they have never been before. On Tuesday, Washington State announced that they plan to keep Ethridge around their program a little longer to try and continue that trend. WSU Director of Athletics Pat Chun announced that Ethridge has signed a one-year contract extension with Ethridge. The contract will now run through the 2027-28 season. In 2018, Ethridge took over a program that had only been to the NCAA Tournament once. Since then, she has raised the bar for the program every year. Under Ethridge’s leadership, the Cougars have seen their win total increase every season. In 2021 the team returned to the big dance. Then, in 2022, the team did it again. Ethridge has also led WSU to program records in regular season wins (19 in 2021-22), Pac-12 conference wins (11 that same 2021-22 campaign) and also led the team to their first ever AP top-25 ranking. "Coach Ethridge continues to lead our women’s basketball program to unprecedented heights," said Chun in the athletic department’s official release. "Kamie’s commitment to building a program centered on excellence has been inspiring to watch. We are appreciative of the incredible achievements these past few years and excited for what the future holds."
