This Just In – A huge congratulations to Trina Kleinhenz for earning the Northwestern Nevada STEM Teacher of the Year 2024 award!


A letter from the Incline High School Boosters Event Chair, Tara Cannon

Join us in showing support for Incline High School at this year’s Highlander Home event – a Hometown BBQ (also known as the Crab Feed) presented by the Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation.  Act FAST, as we’re on the brink of an official sell out (there are only 6 tickets remaining)!  Every dollar raised will contribute to bringing incredible programs to our students.

The event is this Saturday, March 16th at 6:00pm, at the Hyatt. Don’t miss out on the excitement! The evening promises a fabulous BBQ menu, delightful cocktails, a bluegrass band, a DJ, and both a live and silent auction.

Special thanks to the Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation for their generous match – effectively doubling every donation on the first $100k raised! Our Fund A Need initiative aims to support various areas, most importantly, including bringing the “Every 15 Minutes” program to IHS next school year. This program is designed to vividly illustrate the potential deadly consequences of drinking or texting while driving.If you can’t attend, you can still participate. Consider proxy bidding or making a donation on behalf of the cause. Every contribution helps us reach our goal of a bright future for every Incline High School student.

For questions, or to place a proxy bid, please contact Tara Cannon, Chair at: tara.cannon347@gmail.com.

On March 21st at 4:30 at the Incline HIgh School Duffield Theater, the community is invited to attend the annual Speech and Music Competition hosted by the Rotary Club of Tahoe-Incline and the Rotary Club of Incline Village. Students (from Incline High School) are invited to enter the competitions for cash prizes and the opportunity to advance to the Area and District Rotary Competitions. In the spirit of the 2024 Rotary International theme of “Create Hope in the World,” students in the Speech competition will be answering the question: “How have you volunteered towards promoting HOPE in the world, and how did you see HEARTS impacted through the experience?”

The Music competition includes both a Solo Instrumentalist and a Vocalist category.  
Refreshments will be served at the event compliments of the Rotary Incline Clubs. Admission is free.
