Regarding “Oregon’s population boom a boon for schools?” (April 21, page 1):

Katie Scott did a fabulous job with this article, capturing a very complicated situation with clarity and from multiple perspectives. She took the complex and made it understandable. I can only imagine how much time she took researching the various schools and situations.

It is a big-picture view of Catholic education in a rapidly changing environment. Nicely done.
