Letter from the Superintendent
The Oroville Union High School District prides itself on providing an excellent education to all of our students. Part of that excellent education is the opportunity to participate in athletics in a first class stadium and the opportunity to earn scholarships to pursue educational opportunities after high school. I am requesting help from the community to allow the district to continue to offer these great opportunities to our students.
Many people have contributed to our various scholarship funds over the years. The scholarship funds available every year come from the interest earned on our scholarship account. Due to low interest rates over the past several years, those funds have been generating very little interest. Some of the scholarships haven’t had funds added to them since they were created. My counselors are concerned about the diminishing funds that will be available to our students this year. If you are looking for ways to give to non-profit organizations, this is one opportunity to do so. If you would like to contribute to an established scholarship fund (click here for list) or set up a new one, please contact Donna Logasa at (530) 538-2300, extension 1105.
In 2008, the community of Oroville passed measure J, which was a $12 million bond initiative to remodel Harrison Stadium. The old grass field and dirt track were transformed into a modern artificial playing surface and an all-weather track was added. The life of both playing surfaces is approximately 18 years. We are half way through the life of the track and turf and are worried about saving approximately $1.6 million to replace both surfaces. The district is putting money away for this cause and the Oroville Area Sport Initiative Supporters (OASIS) is raising money as well. If you are looking for a worthwhile cause to contribute to, I can’t think of a better way to spend your money. The stadium is used by the Oroville youth on a daily basis.
As we work together to make the high schools in the Oroville Union High School District great places for kids to learn, please do not hesitate to contact me by telephone at (530) 538-2300, extension 1107, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions, concerns and/or comments that I can assist you with.
