Iverson to leave Oroville High School

Carl Iverson, former OHS basketball coach, has taken a teaching position in West Valley, Yakima, School District.

Iverson came to Oroville High in the fall of 2003 as a math and science teacher as well as an assistant boy’s basketball and head girls softball coach. Coach Iverson took over the boy’s basketball program in 2004 guiding them to several post season playoffs in the following years. Iverson was also head coach of girls soccer in its inaugural years. For the past four years, Iverson has also been head boy’s soccer and assistant varsity football coach. During his stay at Oroville JR/SR High School, Mr. Iverson Jr. High Science class has become a favorite of the 7th and 8th graders. Around his room can be found cages with many varieties of snakes and other types of reptiles, as well spiders from around the world. Students for the past 8 years have enjoyed the many “hands on” activities provided by Mr. Iverson as they learned the principles of general science. A favorite has been the making of rockets that are shot off each June just before the end of school. Mr. Iverson’s interest in rocket science earned him a spot last summer at NASA’s Space Camp for Educators. While in Oroville two of the Iverson’s older sons graduated from OHS, Isaac in 2009, and Preston in 2011.
