LOHS premiering piece

The Lake Oswego High School Wind Ensemble on Thursday will premier "The Great Train Robbery" by Andrew Boysen Jr. at the Spring Concert.

The piece was commissioned by the Lake Oswego High School Bands and will be performed at the concert as a live accompaniment to the silent film "The Great Train Robbery" (1903), said LOHS student Sarah Kwartler, who plays the clarinet.

"Premiering a commissioned piece is a huge honor and event," she said. "On behalf of the band, we would appreciate community support at this special concert."

The free-to-attend event will be held 7-8:30 p.m. this Thursday at the school, 2501 Country Club Road.

Purchase Laker spirit gear Friday

The Lake Oswego High School Laker Spirit Store is holding a one-day sale.

The sale provides the public with the chance to purchase Laker gear at a discount, and help the school. The sale will run from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday in the open garden at the back of the school, located at 2501 Country Club Road. All proceeds benefit programs supported by the school store.

Cyber camp features training scholarships

Students interested in attending the PDX Cyber Camp still have time to apply. And what's more, West Linn software consultant PKI Solutions Inc. has announced it will award three $5,000 scholarships for in-depth Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) training to students at this year's cybersecurity summer camp.

PKI is a set of roles, policies and procedures for digital certificates and more. The training opportunity emphasizes security, best practices and hands-on skills labs.

The deadline to apply has been extended to June 1 for PDX Cyber Camp 2017, which will be held July 17-21. The cyber camp, sponsored by Portland-based telecommunications company Pacific Star Communications Inc., offers a hands-on intro to cybersecurity principles and policies.

The PKI training will be in Portland from Aug. 14-18. The scholarships will honor two student organizers of the camp and one camp attendee who delivers an outstanding performance. The scholarships will provide students with an intensive training course later in the summer to expound upon what they learn in the camp.

The scholarships to the intensive training will be awarded at the conclusion of the camp in July.

The camp, which costs $150, includes lunch and will be held at three locations. The Wilsonville location is full, but the co-ed Gresham campsite is still open, as is the girls-only event in Portland.
