CWU Retirement Association

Fall Speaker: Mike McCloskey

Mike McCloskey, a 30-year employee of the Ellensburg School District, has been a teacher at Morgan Middle School for the past 24 years. In 2008, Mike was given the opportunity to create a new elective class offering at Morgan. Having an interest in
the history of Ellensburg, he created a class modeled after the Chamber of Commerce’s highly successful Leadership Ellensburg program that he called Explore Ellensburg. As part of the class, students learn about the past, present, and future of Ellensburg.
Preparing for this class has allowed Mike to learn a great deal about our community, both past and present. He is excited to be able to share some of his favorite historical facts, pictures, and artifacts with the CWURA during a presentation in Sue Lombard on September 29 at 4:00 p.m. Refreshments will follow.
