“In so many ways, this is a community that steps up for our students, including those who are about to take the next step in their academic careers,” said Dr. Caroline Pate-Hefty, WUSD Superintendent. “On behalf of the district, I would like to thank the individuals, families, and organizations that sponsor scholarships each year and support our students and the community. We would also like to thank the WHS Counseling Office that dedicates tremendous time to organizing and planning the Scholarship Night. And, a big congratulations goes out to our students whose hard work and dedication have earned them these opportunities.”
