Spring 2019 Cats with Class. 




Forty-nine students at Westerville South High School were recognized as “Cats with Class” at a breakfast and ceremony held bright and early on Wednesday morning, March 13.  “Cats with Class” honors pupils who have demonstrated acts of kindness, good school citizenship, or service, which help make South a wonderful place for learning and teaching.  It is jointly sponsored by Westerville South High School and the Westerville South Academic Boosters.  The students were joined by their family members, along with teachers and staff who nominated them for this prestigious honor.

Chairperson Lori Jung welcomed the attendees, who were praised by Principal Michael Hinze.  Keynote speaker was Eric Calland (Class of 2003), who was introduced by Assistant Principal Taylor Porter.  Calland, a coach and history teacher, talked about the impact the school has had on him and he told students their time spent at South is shaping them in ways they might not yet even recognize.  He said South left him with a core feeling of authenticity, for it is there that he received an education, earned a degree, was offered career opportunities, and met his wife. 

Student Ruth Curry offered closing remarks.  Faculty coordinator Mary Fuchs and Secretary Beverly Davis were thanked for their efforts in assisting with the program.
