In the first Cadet of The Month of the year, Cadet Private Kairi Kincheloe won for
Bravo Company. She won with a total of 433 out of 630 points. Kincheloe had the
help of her company, plus, Cadet Sergeant Aviella Wilson in preparing for Cadet of
The Month.
Kincheloe was born and raised here in Walla Walla, and had an older brother in the
program. “I’ve been watching the program for 4 years and am now excited to be in it,”
says Kincheloe.

The reason Kincheloe joined this program is because her older brother, Z, was in it. It
looked fun to her and she is doing her best as a cadet so one day she can be better
than him.

When asked how to help other cadets going up for the board, Kincheloe says to learn
how to spell Rhododendron, “It feels really good if they ask you and you know how to
spell it.”

Kincheloe hopes to win Athlete of The Month next, she hopes to do well in all
competitions she goes up for.

After high school, Kincheloe hopes to become a veterinarian to help animals as it has always been a passion of hers.

Congratulations to the Walla Walla High School band and director Andrew Ueckert for taking second place in the Autumn Leaf Festival (4A category) in Leavenworth. on Saturday, September 25, 2021.  

“It was wonderful that they were able to have the event this year and our kids did great,” said Ueckert.

The band participates in the parade every other year and with everyone’s hard work and dedication this year, they were able to give an AMAZING performance.

The event organizer Linda Bradshaw congratulated the Wa-Hi band for its success and thanked them for participating to make Autumn Leaf Festival successful.

The Walla Walla High School Girls’ Soccer Program is putting on a Coat Drive as a community service project. All coats collected will be donated to Coats for Kids and the Christian Aid Center.

Both Varsity and JV teams will have bins to collect the coats at every home game in October – a list of October home games can be found below. So, if you would like to donate any new or gently used coats (sizes 3T to adult are needed) they would gladly take them off your hands 

Home Games (all start at 4:00pm):

Thursday, October 7th v. Pasco (Our Pink Game) Our first day of collecting went well - overflowing can of coats :)
Tuesday, October 12th v. Southridge
Thursday, October 14th v. Hanford 
Tuesday, October 19th v. Hermiston (Our Senior Night)

If you can’t make it to a home game, feel free to take the coats to Mrs. Evans office in the Big Gym!

Thank you for considering and Go Devs!

Homecoming dance a huge success!

On Saturday, October 2, ASB hosted “Hollywood” for the 2021 Homecoming dance at the WWPS Transportation Center. The dance was the largest event held in years with over 1000 tickets sold.

According to Ms. Shayna Hutchens, ASB advisor, said “This dance was a great event because over half of our student body attended, and it took an amazing amount of coordination to pull it off. The folks at the Facilities department and the Transportation department helped prepare the space and decorations. The administration coordinated the supervision of nearly 1,000 students and the ASB advertised, decorated and worked with the DJ to plan the music and he kept kids dancing the whole night. Thanks to the Walla Walla Police Department, campus support, and Ian Edwards for their presence, Concrete Industries for the parking, and all the teachers and support personnel who supervised. It was truly a community effort.”

Students danced to music by The Rockwell Brand owned by Sergio Orozco of Walla Walla. Rockwell played a variety of music from different genres and different eras, appealing to most everyone.

Mr. Shane Prudente and Mr. Kyle Eggers took photos for free and posted them on www.shaneprudente.com.

A great time was had by all students who attended.

Attention Blue Devil fans! All Walla Walla High School home games and drama productions are now free for everyone to attend. The decision to drop all ticket fees aligns with the district’s Strategic Plan initiative of engaging the community in school activities.

“We want the community to come out and support our students, coaches and advisers,” said Superintendent Dr. Wade Smith. “Most community members no longer have children in schools so it’s not easy for them to stay connected with the school district. Sports, music performances and theatrical events are a great way to bring people together and celebrate our collective accomplishments.”

Contractors pour concrete for the all new student plaza at Wa-Hi near the Commons and small gym area. This space will feature outdoor seating and the school’s spirit bell. The Wa-Hi bond project remains on schedule and on budget.
