Not only Home

May 18, 2018
By Joanne Eyerly

“Horizon is not only home to my family but Horizon means home to my family.

In 2010 we moved here from Ohio not knowing a soul. And since then, Horizon has become our Oregon family. We have made friendships and relationships that will last a lifetime.   

I say this because since the meet and greet at the middle school, everyone here, administrators, teachers, parents and students have treated my family and I like they have known us forever.

Carol Peterson was my “mentor” mom and that has made all the difference. If you know Carol and or the Peterson’s you know what I mean. She introduced us to her family and her friends and that first impression has lasted 8 years. Her genuine interest and friendliness was exemplified in the entire Horizon community.
The first thing I was told upon arriving on campus was “Welcome to Oregon, you’re going to love it here.”

The rest is history. I so much enjoyed the people and environment here that I decided to help out and work here as a study hall monitor. Getting to know the students and staff has been more rewarding than I could have imagined. The way the staff cares for each and every student is truly a gift.

We are blessed to be a part of such a caring & supportive community.”
