Spring 2015 Cats with Class
Thirty-seven 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 18. “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 Parent-Teacher Organization. The students were joined by their family members, along with teachers and staff who nominated them for this prestigious honor.
Chairperson Linda Ferguson welcomed the attendees, who were praised by Principal Steve Andersson and Assistant Principal Michael Hinze. Keynote speaker was Dr. Nancy Nestor-Baker, a member of the Westerville City Schools Board of Education and Hall of Fame inductee. She graduated from South in 1975. She discussed the importance of nurturing one’s character by leaning on and learning from others; by standing up for truth and right; and by holding tightly to attributes such as mercy, kindness and forgiveness. Closing remarks were made by student Deonte’ Nix. Faculty coordinator was Mary Fuchs. Secretary Beverly Davis was thanked for her efforts in assisting with the program.
