Willamette High School
Graduation is a night of appreciation and celebration of our graduates. We are very much looking forward to giving more than 300 diplomas to our students who have demonstrated the ability to meet the rigorous State of Oregon diploma requirements.
Overflow parking will be available in St. Mark’s church across the street. Please park in the area marked “WHS Graduation Overflow Parking 6-5-15″ and respect the boundary they have in place to retain a few spots for their evening event.
Willamette students have talent. This attached video shows how Mike Hodgert has inspired and encouraged our students to explore their interests. Through hands-on exploration and teacher inspiration, came this video shot by student Nick Highfill who used a drone and several Go-Pro cameras to produce this video.
