George E. Northcroft, a vice-president and manager at First Interstate Bank of Washing- ton, succeeds Mary McKinley who sat on the board for nine years. Her second term expired September 30. A spokesperson for the College said she was active on the board and they hope that Northcroft will continue that standard. College President Paul Thompson said McKinley did an excellent job on the board, and even though he'd met Northcroft only briefly president Thompson feels he will be a good addition to the board. McKinley was appointed in 1977 by former Governor Dixie Lee Ray and reap- pointed by John Spellman five years ago. A source in the Governors office said Gardner considered Northcroft for the position because of his good community relations. Northcroft was born and raised in New York City, and earned his bachelors and masters degrees at St. Johns University. Prior to Northcroft coming to Bellevue, he served as the president of Citycorp in New York He has also held positions with General Electric, IBM, Equitible Life Insu- rance, and Gruman Aircraft. Northcraft, whose father was a full blooded American Indian, is on the board of directors of the Seattle Urban League, and the Bellevue Boys and Girls Club. He is also co-chaimmn of the marketing committee of Forest Ridge School, and the past president of the Pacific Northwest Bankers Association. George E.

The other four are the Washington State Penitentiary in Walla Walla, Western Washington University in Bellingham, H.T. Buckner Rehabilitation Center in Seattle and Naselle Youth Camp in Naselle, Pacific County. The five collectively spent $218,000 less in energy costs this year than they spent three years ago. Governor Booth Gardner, during an awards ceremony in his office on Wednesday (Oct. 8), told representatives of the five facilities that he appreciated their energy conservation efforts. "This is to thank all of you who took time to make that personal effort on conservation to save money to put back into the operation and provide services," the governor said. Governor Gardner said the energy pro- gram and productivity board are two means of increasing efficiency and productivity in state government. "A lot of people say its just a lot of smoke, you're using mirrors to do somethimg," the governor relatecL It's anything but a public relations gimmick, however. The facts are the productivity awards program, which began taking state employee suggestions in 1983, has proved very succerssful, Governor Gardner said. In 1983-84, the state saved more than $91,000 on suggestions, he saic "This year around 650 ideas saved close o a million dollars and the year's not over yet." Governor Gardner sai& Dick Watson, Director of the Washington State Energy Office, told the five facility representatives the awards were a culmi- nation of the Governor's Energy Team's "look at ways in which we can recognize the efforts of state agencies to be good stewards of energy resources and tax dollars."
