THE SENTINELS OF WAHLUKE
That's the inscription on a plaque in the central commons at Wahluke High School in Mattawa, Washington. Wahluke is so much more than a school. It's the center of a rural community. It's a place of enrichment, safety, healing. It's where tradition is honored and accomplishments are celebrated.
Its architecture is a way of communicating to the students:
“You are stronger than you know. You are never alone. We believe in you. The past is a part of you … but the future … is yours.”
