Fall 2017 Cats with Class. 




Fifty students at Westerville South High School were recognized as “Cats with Class” at a breakfast and ceremony held bright and early on Wednesday morning, November 15.  “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 Starner.  Keynote speaker was Geron Tate (Class of 1998), who was introduced by his longtime friend, Assistant Principal Taylor Porter.  Tate, a Fellow at BRIGHT New Leaders for Ohio Schools, told the students that if they push and motivate themselves, they could become whatever they want to be.  He encouraged them to embrace purpose, people, and process.


Student Carson Buer offered closing remarks.  Faculty coordinator Mary Fuchs and secretary Beverly Davis were thanked for their efforts in assisting with the program.
