Seniors! The FAFSA and WASFA are available beginning today! These are really important documents for anyone looking at pursuing more education beyond Wa-Hi (at any Technical-2 year-4 year schools). Wa-Hi will be offering opportunities to help you complete this document during flex periods and in the evenings. It's our hope that nearly ever Wa-Hi senior completes either the FAFSA (for US Citizens) or the WASFA (for non-citizens). Questions? Ask the Career or Counseling Centers.

 Here's a cool summer job opportunity: My name is Madeline Weaver and I am a Senior at College Place High School.

Right now, we are searching the valley for a brand new set of managers to work in the ball park this summer. I am seeking out counselors, student advisors, and coaches, in hopes of being directed to a few students who will be in Walla Walla for the summer and would be interested in something like this.These managers will be responsible for keeping the output of food and beverages running smoothly, and managing their team of employees during games.

This is a new edition to the ball park and we are looking for these skills and traits in possible candidates:
Communications skills
Leadership skills

*Must be 18 by June 2019
If you can think of a few possible candidates who would be interested in this position (and good at it!), I would love to get in contact with them. Let Madeline know if you're interested Madeline Weaver <> and let me know if you have questions
