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.

The award, presented in front of hundreds of people at the Chamber’s 66th annual Celebration of Business, recognizes a local high school senior who has made notable contributions to our community.

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

District Grad Rates Take Big Jump

Students throwing mortar boards in the air.

Mortar boards went flying at Willamette High School’s graduation. The Class of 2019 had the district’s highest grad rate in more than a decade.

The high school graduation rate in Bethel is now the highest it’s been in more than a decade.

Data just released by the Oregon Department of Education shows Willamette High School’s 4-year graduation rate at 82.6%, higher than the state average and 10% higher than the previous year.

Kalapuya High School’s 5-year grad rate jumped to 51.6%, despite most students enrolling at KHS behind schedule.

How has this happened? For several years, all Bethel teachers have become even more attentive to individual students’ learning needs.

And, the district is increasingly using data to more closely track students’ progress – intervening with supports when help is needed with academics, attendance, or behavior – from kindergarten through 12th grade.
