As a symbol of this united support, West Ada schools, along with several other school districts across the state, will turn on exterior stadium lights from 3:00-6:00pm MT on Wednesday, November 30. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected as well as the entire Vandal family as we collectively cope with this tragic loss. Dr. Bub Superintendent #oneidaho #vandalstrong

Congratulations to @wasd_cte and @mvhs_mavs senior Shelby Wallace, who signed a Student To Registered Apprenticeship Program (STRAP) agreement with Sheet Metal Workers Local 55 and will be employed as an apprentice with @ymcmechanical. This was signed at the “Pacific Northwest Education Conference” held at Boise Grove Hotel. This is such a great opportunity for Shelby, and we are proud of her accomplishments! What is the Student To Registered Apprenticeship Program? This is a program sponsored by @idaholabor where a student is hired by a partnership company and begins on the job training while still attending high school. After graduating from high school, the student will have completed a portion of the apprenticeship program and will continue working with employer in the apprenticeship program with an advancing wage scale.
Congratulations to @mvhs_mavs senior Chase Crawford on being the runner up for the Bright Future Scholarship hosted by @idaho_national_lab A senior at Mountain View High School Chase will receive a $6,500 scholarship for his response to the prompt: “How do the actual risks and benefits of nuclear energy compare with other existing energy technologies and those that will be part of the world’s Net-Zero future?” In his presentation, Chase made some conclusions, including that nuclear energy is essential to a realistic, economically viable net-zero future because of its ability to replace coal and other GHG-emitting energy forms as well as its constant available energy. Outside of school, Crawford enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking and rock climbing. This figures in where he would like to go to college, most likely a place where mountains are not far away like Utah State University. Congratulations Chase!!!! We are beyond proud of you and this major accomplishment. #wearewestada #proudtobewasd
