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.
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.
The Willamette High School Culinary team has won the Oregon State ProStart Culinary Championship, the school’s first state Culinary title since 2007.
They will be traveling to Providence, Rhode Island next month to compete against all the other state champions in the country.
Congratulations to team members Cole Barnhardt, Tyler Livingston, Shane Wilder, Taylor Woolett, Jessica Barnhardt, teacher Martha Humphreys and coaches Jesus Diaz, Bruce Cameron and Erin Emmert.
Cole Barnhardt also won the Oregon ProStart student of the year award and a $1,000 scholarship to an Oregon culinary school of his choice.
Here’s a look at one of their last practices before they won the state championship.
Five Willamette senior student-athletes have signed letters of intent to continue competing in college.
Ashley Guldager signed to play soccer at Linfield, while Katlyn Martinez agreed to play for George Fox. The two longtime friends and soccer teammates will be opponents next season.
Griffin Jeskey’s senior season is still to come in track and field, but he’s signed to run at Oregon Tech.
And football players Bryce Goggin and Bradley Mondo have signed to play at perennial national contender Southern Oregon.
A large crowd of supporters gathered in the WHS gym to witness to signings and wish the athletes well at the next level.
