JCHS Student, Joseph Legendre
Achieves Commended Student Status in National Merit Scholarship Program

(Evanston, Illinois) Officials of National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced that Junction City High School senior, Joseph Legendre has been named as a Commended Student in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program.

Joseph’s selection for this recognition places him in the top five percent of the more than 1.5 million high school seniors who took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

JCHS is proud of Joseph’s accomplishments and his contributions as a student leader in Career and Technical Education (CTE), especially, in our revitalized JCHS Metals Program.
JCHS Alumnus named 2015
Goldwater Scholar
Congratulations John Gillies!
University of Oregon juniors Kyla Martichuski and John Gillies have been named 2015 Goldwater Scholars, a prestigious national award that recognizes under-graduates for their research work in mathematics, science and engineering.

Martichuski and Gillies are the only recipients from an Oregon university. Of the 1,200 applicants, 260 were selected to receive the scholarship.

Martichuski and Gillies will each receive up to $7,500 for tuition, fees, and room and board for their senior years. More importantly, the two survived a rigorous application process to emerge with national recognition of their undergraduate research.

Gillies, from Junction City, is a biochemistry major with a minor in business administration whose research looks at protein interaction with single-strand DNA. He works in Andrew Marcus’ lab in the Institute of Molecular Biology. 

“I took a general chemistry class my freshman year from Andrew Marcus,” Gillies said. “I read one of his papers and went in to talk about it with him. That led to a spot in the lab and getting to work on this research.

“It’s a great honor to win this award, especially given its prestige,” he said. “The funding is nice, of course, but what I appreciate most is getting the recognition for the research I have done.”

The Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation  is a federally endowed agency created in 1986.

JCHS Lockout Drill

On November 17, 2015 Junction City High School will conduct a lockout drill to practice emergency building procedures and identify possible improvements.

The lockout drill will begin at approximately 9:30 a.m. and continue for 60 minutes.

Campus visitors should expect to experience some inconvenience as exterior doors into the East Wing and Counseling Center will be locked, and traffic will be directed to the main office at 1135 W 6Th Avenue. The District Office will participate in a “soft lockout” but will remain open.

Teachers will discuss lockout procedures and expectations, including parent notification, with students. Normal classroom instruction should resume during the remainder of the drill.

The Junction City School District is working collaboratively with Junction City Police and Fire Departments to prepare students and staff to respond appropriately to a wide variety of emergency situations including fire, earthquake, and emergency situations occurring on or near the campus.

Our goal is to minimize the disruption to learning, while providing clear expectations and communication in controlled practice scenarios. Junction City High School plans to conduct full scale lockdown drills during the winter and spring trimesters.

JCHS is on a mission to model Readiness, Respect, and Resilience by example.
We intend to see every student graduate with ability to create opportunities and adapt to change.
We intend for our students to be mindful ambassadors for JCHS and the greater community.
We intend to give our community great reasons to be proud of its youth.
