During the past two years at Whitesburg High School, adverse things have happened that have reinforced our feelings for our school. Due to misfortunes, we have lost two buildings that were so important to us. But yet, we still have maintained our traditional high level of performance.
This year we honored our academic students who mean so much to our school program. Our band, cheerleaders, and DECA Club brought several honors to our school. Our athletic seasons have come and gone leaving behind a wide trail of school honors and individual honors. These many successes were made possible through the support of the community, faculty, and student body. As our school year closes, let us look forward to high attainable goals in the future which will give birth to self-improvement.
