Yearbook Dedication: This year we dedicate the yearbook to a most deserving faculty member, Mrs. Sallie Hubbard. Not only has she taught 21 years, but in those years she has touched the lives of all those she has encountered, encouraged and inspired.

She practices and believes that every student has the potential to succeed. Her motto for living and teaching is that students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. Ask any student, past or present, to describe Mrs. Hubbard to you and you will most likely hear words like inspiring, friendly, patient, trustworthy, and many more descriptors that pages could never fill.

She has worked diligently to establish the Bible Club and her work with other programs throughout the years, beginning with her twelveyear career with the track and cross country organizations to her never-ending work with the annual food drive and the Baccalaureate Service that endears her to the students and inspires each of them.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Hubbard for her service to Whitesburg High School and all of its students. She continues to be an encouraging inspiration of faith and hope, and it is with pleasure that we acknowledge all of what she has done and strives to do in making our school a better place.
