Also, without my experience writing and delivering persuasive speeches, my company would have paid the full amount ourselves. It is clear that a liberal arts education can have a direct effect on a business’s bottom line.”</p><p>After Aswin received her associate’s degree at Edmonds Community College, she pursued her bachelor’s at CWU’s Lynwood center. After graduation, she’s hoping to move into a broader role at work where she can apply the things she's learned. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, knitting, and spoiling her cat.</p><p>The essay contest was open to all undergraduate students currently enrolled in WaCLA member institutions. Entrants were divided into two categories: students who have freshman or sophomore standing at their institution and those who have junior or senior standing. Awards were made in two categories: freshmen/sophomores and juniors/seniors.
