Bend La Pine School Board voted unanimously tonight to name Mountain View High’s track after graduate and Olympic gold medalist, Ashton Eaton.
MVHS Principal Katie Legace said, “Ashton has not forgotten his hometown and his roots and has continued to find ways to give back to his community.
His high school athletic achievements were significant on the football field and track at MVHS. However, teachers remember him more for his character, attitude, and citizenship than his athletic prowess.
I believe this is an appropriate way of recognizing one of our great graduates.”
