Close to 300 Bethel students and parents began their college preparations at Willamette’s first annual College Knowledge Night.
More than 20 colleges and universities were on hand to present information about their schools and offer specific tips during breakout sessions.
College representatives staged sessions on negotiating the college application process, funding for college, how to choose a best-match college, how to make a successful college visit, and more.
For a wealth of valuable college prep information, including the latest available scholarships, check out the Willamette High School College and Career Center website.
Saturday’s annual Bethel Boosters’ Show n Shine Car Show will include a memorial for Eugene Police officer Chris Kilcullen.
The Willamette grad, killed in the line of duty, was a regular at the Show n Shine with his bright yellow 1955 Chevy truck.
If the weather is dry Chris’s truck will be at Saturday’s car show at Willamette High School. A memory book will also be provided for visitors to sign. In addition, a moment of silence will be followed by the playing of taps.
Admission is free to the 13th annual Show n Shine this Saturday, May 14, from 10:00-4:00 at Willamette. All proceeds from the show go toward supporting programs for Bethel School District children.
They’ve been wracking their brains for months on questions like this:
If burning one gallon of gas produces about 20 pounds of carbon dioxide, how many pounds of carbon dioxide are produced by a vehicle getting 20 miles per gallon on a 200-mile trip?
Shasta and Meadow View students answered similar quiz show-style questions against more than 40 teams in the annual University of Oregon Brain Bowl.
A Shasta 8th grade team finished second (the school’s third top-3 finish in four years) and Meadow View’s first-ever appearance earned a second place finish among 6th graders.
And now, the answer: 200 pounds of carbon.
The musical Annie takes the stage at Willamette High School this week.
The student production Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights will feature all the favorites from the Tony Award-winning musical, including “Tomorrow” and “It’s the Hard-Knock Life.”
WHS senior Kylee Wiser carries the lead role of Annie, an orphan during the Great Depression. Taking the stage alongside Annie and her faithful companion, Sandy the dog, are the familiar characters of Daddy Warbucks, Miss Hannigan, and the girls in the orphanage.
Willamette students have been rehearsing for weeks for the three-night performance, Thursday through Saturday at 7:00 p.m. in Powers Auditorium. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
