Shriners present Naselle graduate with sports honor

Cole Dorman, 2019 valedictorian at Naselle High School, was given one more honor Aug. 28. He was presented with the most valuable offensive player award in the Shriner’s Freedom Bowl. He is pictured at a luncheon at Occident 48 Masonic Lodge in Ilwaco flanked by his parents Chris and Alissa Dorman with Gateway Shrine Club members John Bryant, left, Mike Clemenhagen, chairman of the Freedom Bowl, and Bill Field, right. Quarterback Dorman, a three-sports athlete at NHS during his high school career, threw the only touchdown pass of the game for the victorious West team in this summer’s Shriners’ all-star youth event. The Shriners, an international group known by their distinctive fezzes, have recently formed a club in Pacific County. The men’s organization, whose members are all Freemasons, supports 22 hospitals that provide free health care to crippled children and burn victims. Dorman plans to continue his education at Clark College in Vancouver with a view to earning a business degree.
