Every year the Digital Technology & Culture program recognizes an Outstanding Senior for their accomplishments.  This year the faculty in DTC recognized the work and accomplishments of Tihani Cadiem-Moore.

Here is an excerpt from the letter that the DTC faculty wrote in support of Tihani’s recognition:

Tihani’s work in DTC highlights the very best of what we expect from our students. She’s been an engaged member of the WSU campus, the Palouse community, and the Digital Technology and Culture program.

As a member of the WSU community Tihani has been actively involved in residence life and RSOs. For two years she was a RA in Rogers Hall and served on the National Residence Hall Honorary. Tihani has been actively involved in the Hawai’i Club, League of Legends Club, Wazzu Films, and the Digital Media Club; at different points in her college career she’s been an officer latter two. Her senior year she’s served as the president of the Digital Media Club where she’s worked diligently to help her fellow students improve their technical skills through the creation of helpful online technical tutorials for popular programs that are used in DTC and active involvement in social media outreach on the Digital Media Club Facebook page.

In the Palouse community Tihani has devoted her time to improving the area we all live in. She’s completed over 60 hours of time working in the community through the WSU Center for Civic Engagement. She’s volunteered for campus resident halls during fall move-in and collected and donated canned food to local food banks as a part of the National Residence Hall Honorary. She worked with Palouse Cares, a regional non-profit organization focused on food security, to redesign their website focusing on improving their brand identity. Tihani has also volunteered to create ads and pre-show graphics for the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre in Moscow, Idaho.

In the DTC department Tihani has been one of the leaders of the program. She consistently brings her whole self to her projects and work in classes and beyond. Her hard work as a digital artist can been summed up with a glowing quote from her supervisor at WSU Administrative Marketing Services who said she “produces some of the cleanest artwork [she has] seen from a student employee.”

Tihani Cadiem-Moore came to WSU as an out-of-state student from Hawai’i with no friends and a vague idea of what she wanted to do with her life. She stated that “During my early years at WSU, I spent a lot of time exposing myself to new experiences and taking a variety of classes.” Above all her other outstanding work on campus, in the community, and in the DTC program, it is Tihani’s determination and openness to try new things, to effectively challenge herself as she explores the world around her, that make her the DTC department’s unanimous choice for Outstanding Senior.

Congrats Tihani!  We wish you the best on your next adventure!
