Welcome to Umatilla High School’s newest endeavor – an online newspaper for Vikings, created by Vikings in Umatilla High School’s Communications Department. First-year teacher Erick Olson is the adviser for the communications electives. His students in journalism, broadcasting and yearbook will be working together to create the content that you will find on this page. Together they will help tell the story of the 2016-2017 school year.

Like the world of mass communications the type of content you will find on umatillahighlive.com will be ever-changing and always evolving. The staff will have long form features about the people who make Umatilla High School tick; short stories about the activities that fill the days of the students and staff; links to the budding podcast network “The Viking Voice”; and the directions to enjoy the newscasts created by the broadcasting class.
