Senior trip planned for Oregon


Lake Roosevelt High School seniors are planning on a little salt water fun when they take their annual trip, June 1-3.

Advisors Tammy Norris and Aaron Derr, and seniors Aidan Derr, Bradley Wilder and Rylee Pitner, presented their plan to the school board Monday night.

So far, some 20 seniors, out of a class of 43, have signed up for the trip that will take them by train from Spokane to Portland, then by bus to Astoria, where they will prowl the Oregon Coast for a couple of days before their return, using both the bus and train back to Spokane.

The group has been raising money since its sophomore year to help pay for the trip.

While in the coastal area, the seniors will visit the Astoria Column, Chief Comcomly Memorial, Tillamook Cheese Factory, and other sites.

“The students have worked hard to celebrate their graduation together,” Norris stated.

Activity includes fun on the High Life zip lines in Warrenton, bicycle and arcade activity in Seaside and plenty of beach visits.

Derr stated that seniors have already raised $11,000 toward the trip, with the overall cost being about $14,500.

“We have several concession fundraisers to go, and our Super Bowl raffle, and expect to reach our goal,” Derr explained.

To date, 15 seniors have signed on for the full ride and five for the half ride in expenses, and several are still raising some of their funds. Seniors can pick and choose which extras they want to take part in.
