Wide Hollow’s Moving Pledge of Allegiance [AUDIO]

Wide Hollow Principal Jake Hall, left, and West Valley Assistant Superintendent Peter Finch

Having worked at 92.9 The Bull for the past 13 years I have had the opportunity to be involved in some pretty amazing things. I’ve been able to visit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis to see firsthand the life-saving work they do. I had the pleasure of learning radio from such legends as Jaye Albright, Becky Brenner and Yakima’s very own “Hutch.” I’ve also had the pleasure of being on the morning show with Rik and Michele. Our mission is to be real, local and community-oriented. We love to wake up every day with you in mind and find ways to bring our community together.

One feature segment of our show is to go out to different schools in the Yakima Valley and record them reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. That in itself is amazing to listen to, but it’s even more remarkable to see what can happen when you have teachers and a principal who really want to make a difference in the lives of their students.

Jake Hall and the entire staff at Wide Hollow Elementary School have accomplished a lot in a short period of time. Hall has led Wide Hollow’s teachers, para-pros and community volunteers to a number of awards and a huge improvement in test scores. The Wide Hollow Cubs even received a special video message from the Seattle Seahawks last year after the school earned a state Academic Achievement Award for being in the top 5 percent of all Washington schools.

The Bull airs pledges from Yakima-area schools at 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. each weekday. If you want your classroom to participate in the pledge email

It was great to have Micah Cawley from 92.9 The Bull at Wide Hollow Elementary today! Patriotism, Country Music, Our Mayor, Our Future — all together. Go Cubs!!— Jake Hall, Wide Hollow principal

Listening to my students on 92.9 this morning brought tears to my eyes! I am so proud of these amazing kiddos! Thanks, Jake Hall, for bringing 92.9 to WH!— Marissa Durham, third-grade teacher at Wide Hollow
