Raymond School District receives Community Leadership Award
The Washington Association of School Administrators presented a Community Leadership Award to the Raymond School District at the WASA Regional Awards Banquet in Olympia on the 23rd. Accepting the award at the banquet was Raymond Superintendent Dr. Steven Holland, and Board Chair Mark Hatfield.
The Community Leadership Award is presented to community members or groups in recognition of their contributions toward education. The award was presented to the Raymond School District superintendent and board of directors for their leadership in sponsoring GRAVITY High School, a region-wide educational re-engagement program for older youth who have dropped out of school. This school year GRAVITY has served more than 160 students from within a five county region.
The high school has regional centers in Aberdeen, Chehalis, and Shelton. GRAVITY services are available to youth in the East Willapa Harbor area at the WorkSource office located in the Grays Harbor College Riverview Education Center.
