Glenwood track team does well

 


Glenwood high school junior Kinley Troh has been selected to attend the 2018 session of American Legion Auxiliary Girls State in Ellensburg. She will join girls from all over the state in Ellensburg in June to participate in mock government at local, county, and state levels and enhance leadership skills. Kinley, the daughter of Toni and Bill Troh, is being sponsored by the Glenwood Womens Club. Congratulations, Kinley. We know you’ll have an amazing experience in this great program.

The Glenwood Eagles high school track teams competed against eight other schools in the Jeff Agar Memorial Track Meet last Saturday. The meet, held on the new sports field at Trout Lake High School, included larger school teams such as Columbia High School and Woodland. Several of the Eagles did very well against the athletes from the eight other schools including firsts in the 100 meters, pole vault, and long jump for Brooklyn Emerson and first in the discus for Kinley Troh. Kinley tied Nahaleigh Schuster for second in the high jump and the rest of the athletes all had good showing against the other eight schools. It was a very successful meet for the Eagles ladies’ team. Limited space does not allow reporting results for all the members of the teams. Check the sports section for more detailed results for the men’s and women’s teams or go to http://www.athletics.net to find results for the Eagles. Way to go, Eagles.

The family of Lorene Ladiges would like to thank everyone sincerely for their kind expressions of sympathy and thoughtfulness. Your words of comfort and gifts of food and flowers are deeply appreciated and will always be remembered by Lorene’s children. Lorene’s life was celebrated last week with a very moving memorial service and gathering afterward. She will be greatly missed in the Glenwood community.

Come to the Camas Prairie Pioneer Meeting, on Sunday, May 6, to hear Kay Carr, Lyle Schilling, and Richard Hansen talk about their family connections to the original James O. Lyle/Snipes family that settled here in Klickitat County. The meeting starts at 1:00 pm with potluck lunch and business meeting at the Community Church. If you want to skip the potluck and business, plan to arrive for the program around 1:45. Everyone is welcome.

Former Glenwood High School student Corbin (C.J.) Schuster, son of Regina Hernandez, was recently recognized by the Yakama Nation in a special ceremony as a Native American Biomedical Science major. The Yakama Nation highly recommended Corbin as an educator as well and remarked that they are proud of his accomplishments and feel he will go far in his chosen field because he has demonstrated great focus and drive to succeed.

C.J. will graduate from Heritage University (Toppenish campus) in May with a B.S. in Biomedical Science. Following graduation, he will begin a doctoral program in microbiology at Oregon State University. Ultimately, C.J.’s goal is to increase representation of underserved populations in science. He plans to use scientific research as a tool to diversify the field and reach out to other tribal communities to bridge the gap between westernized science and indigenous knowledge. His research will aid in developing possible therapies for human disease, using a model organism, zebrafish, for a model of human disease. As a young teenager, C.J. chose a goal of a career in the medical field and is achieving his goal through amazing determination and dedication. He is truly an inspiration to us all.

From time to time, a Glenwood community member finds himself or herself in immediate need of a certain item of medical equipment, such as crutches, wheelchair, tub bench, walker, etc. The Glenwood Women’s Club is working to revitalize their medical equipment repository inventory. The Club does not store the items. Rather, it maintains a list of community members who volunteer to loan their equipment, then puts the person in need of equipment in contact with the person willing to loan it. Please contact Tillie Williams at (509) 364-3382 if you have equipment that can be placed on the list. Thank you to all who can help with this worthwhile project.
