Congratulations to Coach Alisa Logsdon who has been honored as the 2019-2020 HRVHS Volunteer of the Year. This award to presented by the HRCSD School Board. Coach Logsdon has volunteered for the HRVHS Cross Country team & Track & Field team for the past 6 years. Our best calculation is that she averages over 500 volunteer hours per year mentoring and coaching our student-athletes. Thank you Alisa!!! We are grateful to you and appreciate everything you do for our student-athletes!

Here is her story: Six years ago, Alisa Logsdon walked onto the Hood River Valley High School track, not as a runner, which she had been as a HRVHS student a few years earlier, but as a volunteer coach for the JV girls’ cross country team. She has been there for the team ever since, teaching, inspiring, encouraging, and most of all, leading by example. Three years ago she began coaching the JV girls’ track team, too. When Alisa was a student at HRVHS, she competed as a varsity athlete in cross country, swimming and softball. She graduated in 2007 and headed to Oregon State where was part of the women’s rowing team. She received her degree in Business and Leadership from the University of Puget Sound before moving back to the Valley to help run her family’s business, Wy’east Laboratories. Of course, she brought her passion for sports with her. In 2013, a tumor inside Alisa’s spinal cord changed her life. It’s been successfully treated, but it gave her time to think about how she wanted to live out her life. She says, “I developed a new perspective that led me in the direction of coaching. I knew I wanted to provide the same positive influence on younger athletes that I had received from my coaches.” That was the year she walked back onto the Hood River Valley High School track — as an assistant coach, inspiring both athletic prowess and love of the sport and the team.

Lyric Emmons, a graduating senior and four year cross country athlete, says this: “Alisa is completely accepting of everyone on the team, no matter their goals or their speed. She is the perfect role model, encouraging and motivating us by example to be better athletes and better people. She gives hours and hours of her time, both after school and during summers and weekends. She has even created pamphlets to help us with stretching, nutrition and other things to make sure we stay healthy.” Her positive, inspirational coaching has led her teams to conference and state competitions, including a 2018 Girls JV IMC championship perfect score.

Aquí está su historia: hace seis años, Alisa Logsdon entró en la pista de la Escuela Secundaria Hood River Valley, no como corredora, que había sido una estudiante de HRVHS unos años antes, sino como entrenadora voluntaria para el cruce de chicas JV equipo de campo Ella ha estado allí para el equipo desde entonces, enseñando, inspirando, alentando y, sobre todo, liderando con el ejemplo.

Recibió su título en Negocios y Liderazgo de la Universidad de Puget Sound antes de regresar al Valle para ayudar a administrar el negocio de su familia, Wy’east Laboratories. Por supuesto,
 ella trajo su pasión por el deporte con ella.
 En 2013, un tumor dentro de la médula espinal 
de Alisa cambió su vida. Se ha tratado con éxito, pero le dio tiempo para pensar en cómo quería vivir su vida. Ella dice: “Desarrollé una nueva perspectiva que me llevó en la dirección del coaching. Sabía que quería proporcionar la misma influencia positiva en los atletas más jóvenes que había recibido de mis entrenadores ". Ese fue el año en que regresó a la pista de la Escuela Secundaria Hood River Valley, como 
entrenadora asistente, inspirando tanto la destreza atlética como el amor por el deporte y el equipo.
