So I get to Pendleton today and head for the hotel. On the hill is a big yellow building. The guy at check in said it is Sunrise Middle School.

So one of you Oregonians should be able to tell me about it, there has to be a story behind a bright yellow school?????

I really dont know the reason they did it in that color of yellow.....its pretty god awful looking though. All I could ever think of is either deal on paint or to match the name.

Way back when I lived in Lexington OR that School was new. Mid 1980s I think. I had my scanner on listening to the Pendleton airport tower frequency.


A student pilot on a solo cross country flight came on saying he was lost enroute to Pendelton. He was over a town but couldn't see the airport. The Tower told him to look for a big bright yellow building on a hill. He could see that and they got him pointed toward the airport.
