WLHS Robotics Team 2B Determined Wins Chairman's and Dean's List Award
Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 4/16/2021 3:00:00 PM
West Linn High School Robotics Team 2B Determined was recently awarded the District Qualifiers Chairman's Award, the most prestigious FIRST Robotics Competition award, for their work in the community. They host STEM camps for younger students, volunteer with SOLVE to do environmental sustainability work, and work with Unified students in our district. Two WLHS students were also recognized for their outstanding work in the STEM community, Kate Sousley and Maddie Matthews, with Kate named a semifinalist Dean's List position. Congratulations, 2B Determined!
2B Determined Students teamed up with Wilsonville High School's Error Code Xero Robotics Team earlier in the year to created PPE for West Linn-Wilsonville staff members, giving back to the entire West Linn-Wilsonville community.
The West Linn-Wilsonville School District’s Youth Transition Program (YTP) has become integrated into the very fabric that is West Linn-Wilsonville over the years. One reason for the program’s success is its dedication to inclusion of all students.
A partnership with Vocational Rehabilitation Oregon and the University of Oregon, the district’s Youth Transition Program serves dozens of students across West Linn-Wilsonville’s three high schools. The Youth Transition Program works to pair students with job and internship opportunities throughout the community, allowing students to learn real-world job skills, build resumes, and gain valuable experience.
YTP staff — including Cathy Smith, Becky Hancock, Carol Davis, and Mary Hanks among others — work collaboratively across schools to connect students with the opportunities they need to grow. They have ramped up efforts in recent years, partnering with WLWV high schools to connect students to Clackamas Community College courses as resources, getting students’ foot in the door for a seamless transition after high school. Watch the full presentation to learn more about what the Youth Transition Program offers students in the West Linn-Wilsonville School District.
Welcome to the West Linn-Wilsonville School District!
Our incredible students, talented staff, supportive and dedicated community make this a tremendous place in which to learn and lead.
Our school district guides us with a compelling vision question, “How do we create learning communities for the greatest thinkers and most thoughtful people…for the world?”
This question challenges us to continually hone our practices and skills in creating exceptional learning environments for our students. The question also challenges us to implement practices that help our students grow as thoughtful citizens and compassionate humanitarians. Together, the vision question prompts us to continually engage our students’ minds and hearts. As the late poet, Maya Angelou declares, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
We pledge to do our best when working with the children entrusted in our care. This year holds great promise, great opportunities and great accomplishments for each of them.
