Witnessing History Being Made

After following and studying the presidential campaign and election since September, the Current Events class at Willamette High School watched live the inauguration of the 45th president.

Students were very engaged in the presidential debates and election night, and also studied the history of presidential campaigns in America.

Despite divergent opinions during the election season, students in the Current Events class were respectful of the inauguration process and its representation of the peaceful transition of power.

Although the campaign, election and inauguration are now history, the Current Events students will no doubt have plenty of happenings to study in the coming months.

MLK Day Of Service At WHS

Willamette students, staff and volunteers worked on a campus beautification project during the Day of Service on MLK Day.

Willamette High School students, staff, and volunteers took part in a Day of Service on Martin Luther King, Jr., Day.

Students from the National Honor Society and the Rotary Interact Club worked on a beautification project in the cold weather, clearing garden beds and spreading new bark around WHS.

Each year volunteers respond to MLK’s sermon published in 1963: Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’

For the last several years WHS students have taken part in Day of Service projects around campus on MLK Day, starting a tradition of giving back to the school community.

Educators Surprised With $36,000 In Grants

Prairie Mountain teacher Jenifer Gerlach celebrates after being surprised with a Bethel Education Foundation grant.

Cheers and tears greeted Bethel Education Foundation representatives as they handed out more than $36,000 in grants to dozens of Bethel educators.

The BEF will be funding a variety of exciting and innovative projects to benefit Bethel students at all grade levels, everything from technology to trips and rockets to robots.

The educators didn’t know that the BEF was coming, but they heard the small group of 6th grade Shasta band students marching down the hall leading the grant parade into their classrooms.

The BEF has been raising funds to support teachers’ special projects for seven years.
