Lost And Found Gets Rescued

Bethel Clothes Closet volunteer Jean Phifer with only a portion of the 55 bags of lost and found clothes collected from Bethel schools.

They are the unclaimed, the forgotten, the overlooked and the left behind clothes from the just-completed school year.

55 overflowing bags of lost and found clothes from Bethel schools will soon find happy and appreciative new owners, thanks to the Bethel Clothes Closet.

The program, run out of a room in Bethesda Lutheran Church, provides free clothes to Bethel kids and families in need. During this past school year the Clothes Closet served 324 Bethel children and many adult family members.

Volunteers from Bethesda will examine the lost and found clothes, launder them, sort them by gender and size, and display them in the Clothes Closet.

Families will be able to “shop” for free, lightly-used shirts, coats, pants, hats, shoes, gloves, and new underwear and socks. Each family gets their own private time to choose the clothes they want.

Bethel families in need can contact their Bethel school office in August to make arrangements to visit the Clothes Closet.

The Ford Family Foundation selects scholarship recipients “whose past and potential are worthy of special support and development.”

Four 2013 Willamette High School graduates have been awarded scholarships from the Ford Family Foundation, based in Roseburg.  

Willamette recipients Katie Lloyd, Alex Hart and Anna Hickey will attend the University of Oregon this fall. Wil-Hi’s Hannah Nealy will attend Western Oregon University.

The renewable Ford Family Foundation scholarships cover 90 percent of each student’s unmet financial need for college ($1,000 minimum/$25,000 maximum) each academic year.

120 students from Oregon and Siskiyou County, California were chosen as new Ford Scholars from out of 4,085 applicants.

New Look For Willamette Unveiled

A conceptual design of the Willamette science building includes a new front office on the north side of the building rather than the current south location.

Featuring a sawtooth – or Wolverine claw – design, the new Willamette science building will provide a modern face for Bethel’s flagship school.

The preliminary design of the science addition could change before construction begins, but architects from Soderstrom have provided a starting point for the building that will go up where the current front office is located.

The Willamette science addition is being funded through the Bethel bond measure, passed overwhelmingly by voters last November.

The bond will also provide new textbooks and technology, repairs and upgrades throughout the District, enhance security measures at every school, and the complete replacement of Malabon and Fairfield elementary schools.
