Bethel School District
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.
Marian Blankenship with the PacificSource Foundation personally delivered a check to Bethel Health Center Director Brooke Cottle.
It’s the kind of drop-in visit the Health Center loves to welcome.
Blankenship brought the first of $50,000 promised by the Foundation over the next two years to provide school-based mental health services for Bethel students at the elementary grade level.
The Bethel Health Center provides comprehensive health care services for Bethel students – everything from well-child exams to treatment of acute illnesses or injury – out of its clinic located inside Cascade Middle School.
With the grant from the PacificSource Foundation, the Health Center is able to provide mental health services in the school setting rather than requiring students and parents come to the Health Center for assistance.
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.
