For the 13th consecutive year, the ACE Awards will recognize the incredible work of Bethel staff and volunteers. Nominations are being accepted through April 29th.

Sponsored by the Eugene-Springfield business community under the leadership of Oregon Community Credit Union, the ACE Awards strive to recognize the people who are making a difference in the lives of our children.

The outstanding contributions of Bethel educators will be honored in four categories: Teachers (& licensed staff), Classified staff, Administrators and Volunteers.

The winner in each category will receive a handsome plaque and $1,000 to be used for the school program of their choice.

This year, rather than holding a large-scale event to recognize the combined winners from Bethel, Eugene 4J and Springfield, the winning Bethel educators will be recognized with a presentation at their school or department. These surprise presentations will take place the week of May 21st.

Wonderful Watercolor Wins Art Show

Her watercolor – created on a found background – has earned the First Place Award for Willamette’s Rylee Schuch at the LCC High School Art Show

Willamette senior Rylee Schuch has been awarded First Place at the LCC High School Art Show.

Her watercolor was painted on a “found background” – an old map donated by a history teacher.

Rylee is an Advanced Fine Arts student working towards her Advanced Career Endorsement.

There are 10 WHS students with work on display at the 13th annual LCC High School Art Show.

It runs until April 19th in Lane Community College’s Building 11.

Kalapuya Grant Funds New GIS And Outdoor Education

Kalapuya students will work from the shore and will use the school’s fleet of canoes to map plants around Fern Ridge Reservoir this spring.

A $20,000 grant will soon send Kalapuya High School students out in the field for a mapping project with the Army Corps of Engineers.

The grant from the Mozilla Gigabit Community Fund will provide handheld Geographic Information System (GIS) computers via a partnership with the National Science Foundation. It will be administered through the Bethel Education Foundation.

Kalapuya students will assist with a comprehensive mapping of invasive species and culturally important plants around Fern Ridge Reservoir. They will also monitor the ecological restoration projects that KHS students have completed in recent years.

Students will stream the GIS data back to the Army Corp, getting literal hands-on training with emerging GIS technology, which could be a new career path.

Kalapuya’s is one of only 14 projects in five American cities awarded by the latest Mozilla Gigabit Community Fund.
