News Releases
Wapato High School Students Get NASA Invite - 03/20/19

Good morning all,

I’m sure you are being kept busy given the tragic events that took place in Kittitas County last night.

Here is some much more positive news, NASA has invited Wapato High School’s Robotics & Engineering team to Houston, TX next month to give a presentation on a couple of projects the students have been working on for use during space travel.  Please see the attached release for the details.

Just FYI…these are after school projects so if you have an interest in covering them the students and teachers would be available at around 2:45pm most days.

Please let me know if you are interested.

Thanks for your time.  




Wapato Middle School 37th Annual Cultural Unity Fair - 03/15/19

Happy Friday all,

Attached is a release about the upcoming 37th Annual Wapato Middle School Cultural Unity Fair.  The event is on Thursday, March 28th from 4:30-7:00pm and advance ticket sales start on Monday, March 18th.   All the details are included in the release.

I’ve also attached this year’s event poster in case you can use it anywhere.

It’s not a fundraiser.  The price of admission just helps cover the cost of the event.  The intent is to bring people together from all over the Valley in order to recognize and celebrate the diverse cultures that make up our region.

If you have any interest in coming out to cover the Cultural Unity Fair just let me know. 

Thanks for helping get the word out about this popular annual event.

Wapato High Student Athlete Signing College Letter of Intent - 03/07/19

Good morning,

Attached is a release regarding a Wapato High School student athlete who will be signing a college letter of intent tomorrow afternoon (March 8th) to play basketball on a full ride scholarship.

Also, her signing party coincides with the Wapato School District’s “U Can Be College Bound” Day. 

The District started the “U Can Be College Bound” initiative several years ago as a way to regularly remind ALL of our students, from Kindergarten thru High School, that if they want to seek a postsecondary education of any kind there is nothing that stands in their way.   A couple of days each school year the District puts a little extra effort into supporting the initiative.  Staff across the District are encouraged to wear any college swag they have and to come up with fun and creative ways to support the message “U Can Be College Bound”!

Please let me know if you have an interest in coming out to cover the college letter of intent signing party and/or the “U Can Be College Bound” Day.

Thanks for your consideration.
