Considering Life After High School

Students talking with college representatives

College representatives made their pitches to students and parents at the Career and College Knowledge Night.

From West Point to Washington State and Americorps to Weyerhauser, more than 50 colleges, universities, and career representatives filled the gyms at Willamette High School.

Career and College Knowledge Night gave Bethel students and families one-to-one access to businesses and schools looking for talent.

Detailed presentations included tips for college admissions, SAT and ACT options, and an introduction to military service.

Students made important connections and learned plenty about their options once they graduate from high school.

Surprise Recognition On Teacher Appreciation Week

Award being presented.

Willamette teacher Joe Mancuso receives the Franz Bakery Teacher Appreciation Award. At right is co-worker Edane Chism, who nominated Mancuso for the award.

He wasn’t quite sure what to make of it when a handful of strangers, administrators and students barged into his classroom.

Imagine the surprise when Willamette’s Joe Mancuso was honored with the Franz Bakery Teacher Appreciation Award. He is one of 40 educators in an eight state region to receive the award.

Representatives from Franz Bakery presented Mancuso with a $500 check and certificates for a year’s supply of bread. Fellow WHS teacher Edane Chism submitted the nomination to recognize Mancuso, without his knowledge. She also received a year’s supply of bread.

Finally, Franz delivered more than 100 reusable shopping bags full of bread products for all the staff at Willamette as part of Teacher Appreciation Week, and they prepared hot grilled cheese sandwiches for all the students in Mancuso’s class.
