Culinary Team Cooking For A 3-Peat

The Willamette Culinary team had one last practice before the state championships, delivering a perfect gourmet meal.

With a menu designed to provide a gourmet meal, the Willamette Culinary team will be seeking a third consecutive state championship Monday.

See the menu for the state competition.

Two of the team members, Samantha Thompson and Makayla Schweitzer, represented WHS at the ProStart nationals last year. They are joined by Anthony Bondio, Charlise Stewart and Payton Glover.

The Culinary team has been practicing since October, making the Cheese and Herb Agnolotti, Seared Halibut and special dessert over and over.

The rules require them to cook the entire meal on two propane burners, using no electric-powered kitchen appliances, in one hour.

The state champions will advance to the national championships in Washington, D.C.

WHS Student Named Future First Citizen Winner

Willamette senior Elizabeth Ortiz has been honored with the Eugene Area Chamber of Commerce Future First Citizen Award.

Willamette senior Elizabeth Ortiz has been named the Future First Citizen by the Eugene Area Chamber of Commerce.

Along with being Wil-Hi’s senior class president, Elizabeth is a peer tutor, a PeaceHealth volunteer, the Head Coordinator of the Wolverine Pageant, the WHS student representative to the School Board, and is involved in a number of other groups, clubs and activities at school and in the community.

Arriving in the U.S. from Mexico 11 years ago, Elizabeth spoke no English. Now eloquently bi-lingual, her long-term goal is to become a neonatal surgeon.

Her selection as Future First Citizen is well-deserved. Elizabeth is an outstanding representative of Bethel and the City of Eugene.
