    Honors Night

    What is Honors Night? This is an opportunity to celebrate and recognize seniors for the awards and scholarships they have earned. This event is currently scheduled to be held on May 12 at 7pm in the WHS Auditorium. To recognize our students, we have to know what awards you have earned. These can include scholarships you have received from the college you plan to attend, sports scholarships, military scholarships and others. Fill out the Follow-Up form located in Canvas and include any scholarship information that you know about. If you learn that you have been awarded an additional scholarship after submitting this form, either submit an additional form or email your counselor to let them know. Complete this form by Monday, April 27, to be included in the program. We can't wait to celebrate you in May! 

    Contact your counselor with any questions.
