Lower School Parent Named an Inland NW Woman of the Year

October 13, 2020

Congratulations to Lower School parent Vange Ocasio Hochheimer, one of the Inland Northwest Women of the Year!  Growing up in Puerto Rico and New York City, she used the poverty she saw around her as inspiration to earn degrees in economics.  In both her community service and academic research, the question that drives her is, “How can the economy develop successfully while at the same time preserving the well-being and dignity of people and the environment?”  Read an extended profile of Hochheimer, now a Whitworth economics professor, in this recent Spokesman-Review Article.
