Downtown’s Painted Lady Coffee House and Milwaukie High School are partnering together to launch a Cookies and Milk Campaign to inspire, encourage and recognize exceptional MHS students this school year.

Front row: from left, are Assistant Principal Michael Ralls, Alexi Woods, Courtney Ryman, Nely Calvillo-Huerta, Noah Waagmeester and Mayor Jeremy Ferguson.  On Thursday, Nov. 7, the first 10 students were given their vouchers for made-from-scratch sweet treats by Milwaukie Mayor Jeremy Ferguson; Michael Ralls and Tim Taylor, assistant principals at MHS also were in attendance.

“The event went well today. Kids felt appreciated for their hard work, improvement and academic achievement. Mayor Ferguson congratulated each one and expressed his appreciation for the great work our students have been doing,” Ralls said.

Jill Younce, owner of the Painted Lady, 2045 S.E. Washington St., wants to encourage acts of kindness, good grades and hard work this school year, so every month she has invited each of the 10 MHS departments to nominate a student from that department to enjoy a free cookie and glass of milk.

Students are eligible based on academic performance, improvement and positive behavior.
