Washougal — Washougal High School’s Career Center hosted Be the Change Day on Nov. 1, focusing on volunteerism and learning ways for students to be good citizens. The keynote speaker was Mama Drill, a motivational speaker, who challenged the students to become involved. The students then had a chance to attend three different classroom sessions to learn about different volunteer opportunities and other citizenship topics. The students had a choice of attending sessions where they heard from candidates for mayor, learned about being a better driver, registered to vote, video chatted with a chicken farm in Haiti or learned about organizations looking for student help.
