As well as the clubs she participated in, Corinne played a few sports at Beaverton, such as racquetball, cross country, soccer, and track. She did the Marketing Pathway as well as one year of Health Careers. Her favorite memories while at Beaverton was the trip she took to Saint Louis for racquetball nationals, cheering on her brother’s lacrosse team, and planning for Jam the Dam. Her favorite quality about Beaverton was how welcoming the community is to everyone.

High school is a great time to take risks to figure out what your future might look like. You might figure out you hate something you thought you liked or you might develop a new passion!

Top 5 Favorite Memories at Beaverton
By Noelani Lambert

My favorite memory here at BHS was my junior year when my softball team took the 5th place title in state. It was a great memory because it was my favorite group of girls and we had so much fun that year. We had been working so hard all season to make a statement and play our hardest and we did that by leaving everything on the field.

Another great memory I have was Jam the Dam my junior year because it was the only year I was able to attend. It was a great game and a great way to experience our community!

Another one of my favorite experiences was my freshman year, traveling to Portland State with my Beaver Lodge class. We are really good friends, and that day was the beginning of our friendship. We got to spend the day together and explore the campus. Another memory I have at Beaverton that I will never forget is the sleepovers that I would have with my softball team last year and the year before. We were a really tight knit group and were really bonded. We spent lots of time together and created friendships that will last forever!

My last favorite memory at Beaverton was College Commitment Day, because it was a perfect opportunity to reflect on my high school experiences and accomplishments. I never would have expected that high school would fly by so fast and I would be headed off to college soon. It was strange to thinking back and contemplate the last 18 years of my life.
