50th Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction

February 27th, 2014 by Marcia Bingham

The 50th Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction is on tap for March 15 and 16 at Forks High School.  For those who don’t know, this is THE event of the year.

Airwaves in Forks will be tuned to the high school that weekend.  Hundreds of donated items will be offered up for bid to those with their ears tuned to 96.7 radio  and their computers on over the weekend.  Home crafted items, art work, delicious edibles, pledges and labor, anything with a monetary value will be brought to the school to be offered for sale with proceeds tagged for scholarships.  Over one million dollars has been raised for this worthy cause in the last 50 years in Forks.

Competition exists each year between classes to see who will raise the most money.  The winners are the students who participated and who were able to use scholarship monies for further schooling.  Any graduate of a Forks high school is eligible to access that money.    

Food will be served all weekend at the event so all are invited to come and spend part or all of Saturday and Sunday at the High School Commons.  It’s fun and will benefit Forks students.

Forks High School 1925-2010

June 15th, 2010 by contributor

forks_high_resizeWell it has begun. The 1925 section of Forks High School has been fenced off and several maple trees and some shrubs have been removed and piled as the demolition begins to make way for the new Forks High School. The Spartan sign was carefully removed earlier in the day. I could not help but feel sad as I watched my very own Alma Mater soon to be no more. Plans for the new school include a grand entryway, using the historical facade of the 1925 building. “Hail to thee ole noble Forks High” those who walked your halls will always have their memories. And we will always “Hail the Blue and Gold!”
