Congratulations to the Warrenton School Board, superintendent, principals, teachers, coaches, staff, boosters and volunteers. The positive news about our school system didn't happen by accident. Each one of these people deserve our praise for their teamwork to get here.

I would like to especially thank The Astorian's positive coverage for our outstanding year of athletics. The athletes learn the real work ethic when they are properly coached. Winning is the reward. The most valuable attribute learned is to be able to look forward to good advice.

The same attitude that a well-coached athlete learns is the same as a good employee. As we debate what trade to teach, I think work ethic is the most important.

With our new vocational tech program in process, many more students will stay in school and be ready for the workforce. Instead of a minimum wage job, they will have the tools to advance their income and education. Good tradespeople are always in demand.

Thank you from our community. We are proud of you.
