Oregon City High School Scarlet Brigade Performs at The Pearl Harbor 75th Anniversary Ceremony in Hawaii

In November the Oregon City High School (OCHS) Scarlet Brigade, a group consisting of the Cheer team, Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC), Flag Team and Band, performed at the 75th Pearl Harbor Anniversary Ceremony in Hawaii. The prestigious invitation was extended two years ago, and OCHS was honored to receive the opportunity.

The 147 students along with staff and volunteers flew to Hawaii to perform in the Waikiki Holiday Parade alongside 1,000 student musicians from across the country and Japan. Two years of intense preparation and fundraising efforts made the trip possible. 

"I was so proud that our students were invited to participate and represent Oregon," said Tom Lovell, OCHS Principal. "It was amazing to see the dedication of our students set a goal and not stop until they reached it."

Oregon City High School Staff Receives AED Training

Recently Clackamas Fire District #1 visited Oregon City High School to train staff members on how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). Over 100 staff members attended the training. Student safety is a high priority at the high school as approximately 2300 staff and students are on campus daily. Having quick access to the AED’s and training on utilization of this valuable resource is very important.

Oregon City High School has five AEDs; three located in the building, one at the baseball field, and one at the football stadium. Beyond technical training, staff engaged in re-enacting scenarios that could occur within the building that would require the use of the AED. The training of the staff improves an already strong commitment to preparedness and safety at the high school.
