Earlier this month, Chief John Batiste promoted three individuals who have gone above and beyond for the State of Washington and the public.

Congratulations to our promotees! We look forward to seeing you thrive in your new positions!

Due to the pandemic, the ceremony had a limited number of in-person attendees.  However, the WSP livestreams every promotional ceremony on our WSP Facebook account.
