Speech and Debate

It was a tough one and our lack of winter competition due to weather showed-- but I'm so proud of the whole team-- they represent Hood River as mature, compassionate, and engaged learners. I get compliments on them at every tournament. We were one of the largest teams there and were the only large team to come from a school that does not have a Competitive Speech class-- Ashland, who won 5A, has 2 full sections of competitive speech in addition to their intro to speech classes. So I think we hold our own quite well. Thank you all for your continued support of the team. Fundraisers for the Nationals trip have been planned. I'll send info soon. -- DeLona

Ruby Patterson won 2nd Place in Original Oratory at the OSAA State Speech competition on April 22nd. Junior Mason Leavitt made it to the semi-final round of competition in Radio Commentary. Hood River Valley High School took 18 students to the state tournament which was held at Western Oregon University in Monmouth. According to coach DeLona Campos-Davis, “the competition was especially challenging this year, but our young team had a good showing in their preliminary rounds.” The only senior to compete for HRVHS at district and state was Douglas Asai, who competed in both Lincoln-Douglas debate and Extemporaneous speaking. The team is currently recruiting new members in preparation for next year.

Recipients of the Local Scholarships will be given their awards at Senior Scholarship Night at 7:00 p.m.. Any student receiving a Local Scholarship will be sent an invite the week prior. Family and friends of the recipient are also invited to join us.


As it is allergy season - just a reminder that for any medication needed during school hours the front office must have a medication administration form on file. If a student is carrying their own medication, the medication administration form must be signed by parents/guardian and a student’s healthcare provider. If a student is going to have the medication in the front office, the form should just be signed by parent/guardian. All medications that will be kept in the front office must be brought into school by a parent/guardian and must have student’s name on the container. All medications must be picked up by parent at the end of the school year – any medication not picked up will be thrown away.

Volunteer Judges needed for EA night


Volunteers are needed to judge our 2nd semester (EA) Presentations on Monday, June 5th from 6:20 to 8:45. Packets and refreshments will be handed out in the foyer beginning at 5:45. From 6:00-6:10 staff will be available to answer questions for those who have not volunteered before and/or reviewed the information at our website and still want further guidance. Information to help you understand what is involved in preparing an EA, and what we ask of our volunteers when judging is located at our website www.hrvhs.com. In the menu bar click on “Academics” and then click on “Extended Application” there you will have access to all the information needed. Volunteers will be assigned in groups of two or three to a room and students will be presenting their projects in 10 minute time slots, with judges having another 10 minutes to score. If you are interested please contact Wendy Herman at 541-387-5034 ext. 1 or e-mail at wendy.herman@hoodriver.k12.or.us. As always, a HUGE THANK YOU to those that continuously volunteer to judge our students’ presentations.

SUMMIT CAREER CENTER: Summer College Visits

Summer is the perfect time for parents of juniors to help their soon-to-be senior concentrate on what career and college plans their student will pursue after high school by visiting different colleges. The SUMMIT Career Center has a handout on suggested questions to ask when you are visiting a college. If you want some direction in which colleges or technical schools to visit, the SUMMIT office would be glad to schedule an appointment with you and your student. Call Lisa at 541-387-5034. Students can and should also see their Guidance Counselor with questions.
