  • Congratulations Daniel Tang - Intel STS 2015 Semifinalist!

    Posted by Kathy Connell at 1/8/2015

    Daniel Tang  
        Development of GAD2 Expressing Cells in the Zebra Finch HVC During Critical Periods of Song Learning is the title of West Linn High School senior Daniel D. Tang's project submitted for the 2015 Intel STS competition.    
         What is Intel STS?  Intel Science Talent Search (http://student.societyforscience.org/intel-sts-2015-semifinalists) is the nation's most prestigious pre-college science competition. Alumni of STS have made extraordinary contributions to science and hold more than 100 of the world's most coveted science and math honors, including the Nobel Prize and National Medal of Science. Annually, students entering the Intel STS compete for more than $1.6 million in awards. Only 300 students are announced as semifinalists each year. From this select pool, 40 finalists are then invited to Washington, DC in March to participate in final judging, display their work to the public, meet with notable scientists, and compete for three top awards of $150,000 each.

With that in mind, here are some of the trends we’ve noticed over the course of 2014 that are contributing to the schools’ success:

    • Award-winning teachers
    • Kids who care

  • Wilsonville High School band shares gift of music

    Posted by Ashlyn McManus, senior, Wilsonville High contributies a regular column to the Spokesman at 12/24/2014
    McManus  

    Not many communities have eager groups of young musicians willing to perform all around town for the enjoyment of others. The WHS band and orchestra director, Chad Davies, introduced the idea of a chamber ensemble program for the first time last year. A chamber ensemble is a smaller group of musicians who play without a conductor. In these ensembles, made up of any desired combination of instrumentation, no two musicians are playing the same exact melodies of the song.  Chamber ensemble performances provide yet another way to branch out and touch the community with our music by performing at work parties, Starbucks shops, outside of grocery stores and more. These musicians get to share the benefit of their hard work with those around them, and that is something that can really be appreciated. FULL STORY
