Western Washington University alumna Iva Reckling was recognized this spring as an outstanding graduate by faculty, according to a media release sent by the university.
Reckling graduated from Western in March with a bachelor’s degree in recreation management and leadership and a minor in environmental science.
At Western, Reckling worked to secure a $30,000 grant for the Right to Risk program, which sought to make outdoor adventures more accessible to those with a disability or with marginalized identities. She also worked for Western’s Outdoor Center as a trip leader and the challenge course coordinator. In an internship, Reckling taught and led camps at Walking Mountains Science Center in Colorado.
