YVCC could spend millions on new buildings in Yakima & Toppenish


YAKIMA, Wash. -- Yakima Valley Community College is making plans to expand. Administrators want to build two new buildings. One for facilities in Yakima. The other for students in Toppenish. KIMA learned the cost would run in the millions.

It's business as usual in YVCC's print shop. Hard to do when the space is unusual.

"Palmer was not designed to house all the new copiers and the new equipment that the print shop uses," said YVCC's Vice President of Administrative Services, Teresa Holland.

Unleashed: Jarik McCann

​Yakima Herald Republic

Greetings! My name is Jarik McCann, and I am a junior at Highland High School, yet only 15 years old. I recently heard about the Unleashed position from my drama/Greek mythology instructor, and my family encouraged me to pursue it. So with a burst of gumption and a little faith, here I am.

This new opportunity is just another thing to add to my list of somewhat-life-changing events in the past year. Allow me to elaborate:

To start, both Highland High School and the Highland community are still relatively new to me. Last autumn, my family moved from Yakima to Tieton to be in a more rural setting. I had lived in the city for most of my life (“homegrown in the Valley” as my mom says), and we were ready for a change. Once we arrived in our new home, however, there was a terrible fate awaiting us: No Internet.
