Thursday, June 9, 2016
Glencoe’s Team Shockwave has ranked among the top teams in state and national competitions.
Videography has been completed and the editing stages have begun on the next planned video in the Promise of Oregon campaign, focusing on Glencoe High School’s (Hillsboro School District) robotics team.
Team Shockwave has ranked among the top teams in the Pacific Northwest and the nation. The new video is scheduled to debut this fall on the Promise website at www.promiseoregon.org.
The Glencoe High video is one of four planned 2016 videos showcasing cutting-edge programs – in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), career and technical education (CTE), the arts and more – that support students in reaching their potential.
During its first year, the Promise campaign celebrated the accomplishments of Oregon students and helped galvanize support for increased funding for public schools. Legislators ultimately settled on a State School Fund figure of $7.4 billion for 2015-17 – up $850 million from the last biennium.
