Join Our Team
Southworth Joins No Excuses University
Southworth Elementary started researching Kids at Hope and No Excuses University four years ago. A team of staff made site visits and determined to implement the Kids at Hope program. This past year the team received training on becoming a No Excuses University school and then rolled out several trainings to the entire staff, which prepared them to create the endorsement application for becoming a No Excuses University school. Principal Cook said, “We are happy to announce we have accomplished our goal to be recognized as a Kids at Hope and a No Excuses University School before we enter our new building!”
CENTRAL WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY ACCEPTS 17 STUDENTS WITH SCHOLARSHIPS
"We are so thankful to the CWU for bringing their 'on-the-spot' admissions event to YHS and helping our seniors through the admission process." Career Center and Scholarship Specialist Nicole Mathis said. "Many of our students are first generation college students and their family might not be familiar with the process. Introducing students to the people who will support them in their journey was a big step in their future as Wildcats!"
