Spring Sports State Recognition

During the June 21, 2022 school board meeting School Board members honored Spring 2022 student-athletes for their accomplishments at State. 

In 2018-2019 Walla Walla Public Schools started a new tradition of honoring state champion individuals and teams at a board meeting. Students and teams qualify for this recognition by finishing in the top three at state for athletics, music, drama, FFA, FBLA, debate, JROTC and any other state qualifying activities. This is an opportunity for these outstanding students to be recognized by the Superintendent and School Board.

Several students, coaches and teams were recognized June 21.
