PULLMAN, Wash. – Patty Winder has been named associate director for the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships at Washington State University. The position had been vacant since 2009 when Chio Flores left to become director. Winder began her new duties Nov. 16.
 
Winder has been assistant director of scholarships in the office, so she is familiar with its work. In her new role, she will manage day-to-day operations of the counseling staff and perform administrative functions.
 
“I am looking forward to exploring some new ways of carrying out our mission and bringing new ideas that will benefit the team,” she said.
 
She has 18 years of higher education experience, including stints at Keene State University in New Hampshire and Oregon State University in Corvallis. She came to WSU in 2006.
