Good afternoon. In the newsletter today: Makayla Lillie, a 15-year-old PHS student from Alpine, earned an impressive victory earlier this month at the Statewide 4-H Ranch Horse Competition and is the featured news item in my Three Things column this week. Also, the Warriors took a victory on the road last night in Klamath Falls.
Thanks for reading!
