Big Sendoff / Big Payoff For WHS Band & Choir Thursday!

Many WHS students gave the WHS Band and WHS Choir a big send-off Thursday in the Commons as the two musical groups boarded buses for State Competition. Both performed a number before their departure. 

There was great news to report later Thursday from State Competition. Mr. David Brody, interim band director, indicated that both the band and the choir had received 1 ratings at State - "it's been years since both have received 1's."
