Thankful Thursday: Richland grads make hometown proud

August 29, 2013 

Mid-Columbia school performance standards were nearly all topped by Richland (TCH 8/27/13, 10th and 4th Graders performance standards). Obviously Richland has many professionals, and other parents who know the value of an education and work hard to educate and raise their kids. Even so, Richland schools are like no others; Richland teachers really make it happen.

You can watch Santino Fontana star on Broadway and Hope Solo in the Olympics. U.S. military commanders and Boeing CEOs all went to Richland schools.

We watched so many kids excel through Richland schools over the years; what a grand experience.

I am so proud of our two kids. They work hard, are motivated and all we could ever ask for. Richland schools have the people who really taught and motivated them in academics, life skills and sports, we thank them all.

Richland schools, wow!
