"It was the longest 10 days of my life," he con­
tinued, "but it was the most rewarding."

we have had an opportunity to pro­

are delighted to have been selected and believe we can add
some dimensions to the program to improve the quality.”
The evaluating committee after careful review scored the
YMCA with 93 points out of 100 for meeting the assigned
criteria, such as being able to develop a smooth transition,
developing a plan to increase service to a larger amount of
student families and being qualified and experienced as su­
pervisors of the child care staff.
Hall said that they will have a Discovery Day Camp pro­
gram for school-age children during summer break.
Shaun Read received a silver medal in Parlia­

bronze medal in Extemporaneous Speaking as
well as a gold medal in Persuasive Speaking. In
addition to the six individual awards Clackamas
received the Bronze Sweepstakes Award in Par­
liamentary Debate.
"It was quite an accomplishment; I think it's
the best that we've ever done and overall every
single one of the students has come back as a
national champion," Brennan said.
"Most of all I enjoy the way that our team
works together. We work as a team so incredibly
well, and I think at nationals is where the fine
