Walla Walla Public Schools established Partners in Learning Month in May 2010. This month the district sent nearly 150 proclamations and letters of recognition to its Partners in Learning. 

“We so appreciate the individuals, businesses, organizations and agencies who partner with the district throughout the year to support our students,” said Superintendent Wade Smith. “We strive to Develop Washington’s Most Sought-After Graduates and each of these partners offers unique experiences and opportunities for our students and staff. 

The district recognized Walla Walla Future Farmers of American Alumni & Friends (Michelle and Staci Humphreys), Walla Walla Valley Early Learning Coalition (Samantha Bowen) and Betty’s Preschool (Betty Lodmell) as 2019 Partners of the Year.
