Principal, Armand Larive
When and why did you move to Hermiston?
We lived in Goldendale, Washington. My dad was
in a supervisor position [at a saw mill] at that time
and they moved him to Port of Umatilla, where
they put in a chip facility. I was here for all four
years of high school. I played sports and gradu-
ated in 1994. I went off to college, Columbia Basin
College and St. Martin’s, and played volleyball
and basketball. When you graduate in December,
there’s not a whole lot of people looking for teach-
ers. I went home, did some long-term subbing,
and then the next thing I know, I had a sixth grade
teaching position at Sandstone Middle School for
the following year.
What is your favorite place to eat in
My family rotates. We love Thai, so we go to
Lawan’s. We love Chinese, so we’ll do Chin’s,
mostly because of the history. We taught their chil-
dren. And then, Delish Bistro of course. We love
both sushi places in town, and Ixtapa.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Spending time with friends and family.
What surprises you about Hermiston?
Growth. When I reﬂ ect back to when I thought
‘Why do I have to move to Hermiston?’ as a fresh-
man in high school to now thinking I’d never want
to leave, when I see the growth, it just ﬂ oors me.
What was the last book you read?
“Stronger Together” by Terri L. Martin and Cam-
eron L. Rains. It’s about collaborative leadership.
What website or app do you use most other
Snapchat. In previous years, I’d do a video clip
or a picture to let staff know about donuts in the
break room with those funny ﬁ lters.
If you could travel anywhere, where would
Greece and Italy, because of being a sixth grade
teacher, and teaching about ancient civilizations.
I want to see the Colosseum, and go to the island
What is the funniest thing that’s ever hap-
pened to you?
Last year, during a fundraiser for the Kindness
Club, we had mini-rewards for students if they hit
a certain about of money raised. I let them do my
hair and makeup. I had all this makeup stuff they
could use, and I was absolutely hideous. All the
kids were like “You look horrible!” It was one of
the funniest things to happen to me recently.
What is one of your goals for the next 12
I have teacher and student goals. My goal for my
students is growth, building skills and charac-
ter and social emotional growth. For my teach-
ers, it’s their strategies and the support I can pro-
vide them. I know they’re big goals, but that’s my
opportunity to get to be a piece of the pie.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
My children. My son and my daughter. If you
would have asked me years ago though, it would
probably be when I got teacher of the year at
Sandstone Middle School.

AUG. 16, 1994
Arlin Phillips and his diving
crew at Northwest Metal Fabrica-
tors found a surprise in the Colum-
bia River last week.
Diver Kevin Brown discovered
a safe, containing some dissolved
paper, a key and 27 cents in change,
a few feet from an irrigation intake
east of Hat Rock State Park.
“It looked like someone had
thrown it off the pump station,”
The safe, its door removed, had
in it a 1990 penny.
Hermiston Police Chief Grant
Asher said the most recent safe heist
he recalls happened in 1987, when
a “big José of a safe” was stolen out
of the Hermiston Tri-Cinemas.
This safe, a “Century Supreme,”
was small by comparison. Phillips
said it was of the type found in a
home or small business.
