THIS MESSAGE IS FOR WHS ALUMS! (anyone can read it but I hope ALUMS do for sure!) It is a bit lengthy but hope you can find time to look it over and help out with the NEW ALUMNI DIRECTORY!!
The CRUSADERDOM has spoken and Logan Jones will now reign as WHS DUKE for the 2017-2018 school year. Duke Logan joins Duchess Lexi Saffell who received her crown during the football season - the two become part of a WHS tradition that began back around WWII - Congratulations Logan - Reign on Duke!

All the candidates and their escorts were on hand, the band played, the color guard performed, the cheerleaders cheered, students, faculty and parents looked on as the end of the school day and Spirit Week approached. Oh yeah, the Senior Boys did their rendition, if you will, of RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL'S "ROCKETTES"! Quite the performance!! :)
