Community Collaboration Benefits Students

A partnership between State Senator James Manning, the Oregon Black Education Foundation, NextStep Recycling and Kalapuya High School has become a source of support for students.

Kalapuya students Nathan Tena, Delaney Aguirre and Orion Trent were presented free refurbished laptops courtesy of NextStep Recycling and State Senator James Manning (back right).

Together they arranged for three KHS students to get free refurbished laptops from NextStep.

Seniors Nathan Tena, Delaney Aguirre and Orion Trent were selected as winners of a Kalapuya essay competition in which students described their future career ambitions and explained how owning a computer would help them on their path.

Senator Manning remembers growing up without many of the resources that other kids enjoyed, and he knows there are students who only need a small boost in order to really take off.

That’s why plans are now underway to ensure that all 12 KHS students who submitted an essay will be getting their own free refurbished computer from NextStep.

Going With The Flow

Now, this is a field trip!

Kalapuya High School students paddled 32 miles down the Willamette River, from Salem nearly to Portland.

Navigating tandem and triple canoes for three days, students covered small rapids and swift moving water while keeping an eye out for Osprey, Bald Eagles, Kingfishers, and Blue and Green Herons.

Their service-learning project was coordinated by the Oregon Youth Conservation Corps with Oregon State Parks and Willamette Riverkeepers.

Students camped on the riverbank, weeded and mulched native plants in a restored river floodplain, and even went elbow-deep into mud to harvest Wapato bulbs, a Native American food source that the students roasted over a campfire.

Along the way they learned about the ecological impact of intact waterways, and were enlightened on the historical uses of the river.
