Shasta Band Shines For County Audience

Teacher Mike Reetz leads the Shasta Jazz Band as the audience settles in for the State of the County address.

There are reasons why the Shasta Jazz Band was invited to perform at Lane County Commissioner Pat Farr’s State of the County Address.

Farr is a big fan of Shasta’s band – and Bethel School District in general. But, he also knew the students would wow the audience of elected officials and other power brokers attending the address.

The Shasta students did not disappoint.

Performing before and after Farr’s address, the band provided the perfect atmosphere and left the crowd in awe that middle school students could play so well.

Thanks to Commissioner Farr for the invitation, and thanks to teacher Mike Reetz and his students for sharing their talents and representing Bethel School District with distinction.

A Community Tradition Continues

WHS Leadership students served a free meal to local community members at Willamette’s annual Senior Citizens breakfast.

Santa greeted visitors at the door as around 80 people were welcomed to Willamette’s annual Senior Citizens Breakfast.

Community members were treated to a free breakfast served by Willamette Leadership students.

The WHS Topnotchers sang seasonal songs, free raffle prizes were given away, and lots of good cheer was shared.

After 30 consecutive years of hosting the breakfast, Willamette was forced to postpone last year’s event due to icy weather.

Thanks to WHS Leadership students and advisor Jeanie Hedberg, the 31st version of the breakfast was another rousing success.
