Information:

"The Beacons" celebrate people who have shown excellence and leadership through high school athletics. Some have actually participated in S-K athletics, some have coached and/or administered, and some have just made sure high school athletics in Salem-Keizer actually happen. Many have fulfilled all those roles. But each of our Beacons are people who have been role models for the rest of us, shining a light on the importance of high school athletics.

We will also celebrate the 'best of the best' of today's high school athletes as we recognize the Athlete of the Year for each of the OSAA-sponsored sports offered in the Salem-Keizer School District. This brings together today's athletes with those who have gone before. Today's athletes get to see the shoulders upon which they now stand and those being honored as Beacons get to see a glimpse of the future."

The Beacons Assist Athletic Participation 

The Salem-Keizer Beacons have announced $2500 payouts to each of the six Salem-Keizer high schools for the purpose of increasing or ensuring athletic participation. Schools have or will use the money for purchasing running shoes for cross country athletes, bringing on additional coaches for both boys soccer and girls cross country coaches, and renting tennis facilities to assure that non-varsity participants have an opportunity to play. Those are just three examples. Other schools indicate they will continue to use money raised and disbursed by The Beacons to remove any financial barriers faced by a student-athlete who wishes to participate.

The Beacons raise money by recognizing outstanding former and current athletes, coaches, administrators, and supporters from the Salem-Keizer School District. The Beacons are dedicated to helping remove any financial barrier to athletic participation faced by a student-athlete.

The Beacons

The primary goal of The Beacons is to remove any financial barrier that might prevent any student in any Salem-Keizer School District high school from enjoying the benefits of athletic participation. We are dedicated to ensuring that all students have the opportunity to participate because Salem-Keizer high school athletics focuses on excellence in academics, leadership, character development, and competition as vital components in student achievement.
