Oak Harbor High School Wildcat TV students did an outstanding job over the holidays in helping to bring the school and the community closer together.

Many community members are older and don’t have kids in school, so they don’t go out to school activities. But that doesn’t mean they’re not interested, and Wildcat TV gives them a way to participate from their own living rooms.

The high school TV crew did a fine job of filming and rebroadcasting the championship and other playoff Wildcat football games. Everyone with a TV got to feel they were a part of this memorable piece of school history.

Meanwhile, Wildcat TV students were filming and broadcasting the Holiday Parade through downtown Oak Harbor, the ROTC Pass in Review, the Navy Band Northwest Holiday Concert, and various school band, chorus and other holiday productions. It all made for outstanding local viewing opportunities.

In a few short years, Wildcat TV has become a vital part of the Oak Harbor community, making everyone feel that the schools belong to all of us. Congratulations on making such a valuable contribution to the community in 2006. We’re sure there’s plenty more to come in 2007.
