I am married to my lovely wife of twenty-seven years, Tracey. Tracey is a school nurse at Edgewood Middle School. We are the parents of two wonderful children. Our oldest, Tyler, is an assistant football coach and graduate student at Anderson University in Anderson, IN. Our youngest, Tara, is a senior also attending Anderson University.

In the fall of 2005 we became the legal guardians of Yachaaroah Lightbourne Stuart from the Bahamas. " Cha" is a graduate of UTEP in El Paso, TX where he was a member of the UTEP Miner NCAA DI football team.

We are involved in many activities. We are involved with and enjoy our church family at WCC. We also love the Performing Arts, professional and collegiate athletics, and nearly all outdoor activities.

On Thursday, November 9, WCHS school officials will recognize and honor all students who achieved honor roll status for the first 9 week grading period.  This recognition will take place during the Nov. 9 Enrichment period.

Congratulations to all who completed this wonderful task.  We would also like to encourage all students to take advantage of a new opportunity to join this list during the second 9 week period.

Dear Parent or Guardian,

We are seeking your assistance with stopping a concerning trend that has been occurring nearly every Thursday morning.  That trend is chronic tardiness.  There are a large number of students who arrive late each Thursday.  The number of tardy students is nearly seven times as high on this day than on any other day of the week.  

Thursday morning is our late start, PLC day.  This day provides teachers throughout the district an opportunity to collaborate, share, and learn from one another.  The result for our teachers is a guranteed hour each week to plan, review data, and provide the best instruction possible to our students.  In order to continue with these all important PLC days, our students must attend, be here on time, and be in their respective classrooms by 8:30 AM.

Beginning next week, we will be assigning disciplinary consequences to repeat offenders.  As a parent or guardian, anything that you can do to assist will be greatly appreciated.  Our students need to be in class and ready to learn every Thursday morning at 8:30 AM.
  
Thank you for your assistance!

Best,
Your Administrative Team

Last May, Mason Johnson, then a freshman, won a $100.00 shopping spree at Wal-Mart as part of the Tiger Way Program. Unfortunately, the timing wasn't good to take this young man on this spending spree. After multiple attempts of trying to plan the event, Mason finally got to accompany me to Wal-Mart to spend his $100.00 prize.

Here is where the story differed from most. When his grade-level principal, Mrs. Huffman and I asked how he planned to spend his prize money, Mason, paused and stated, "I want to purchase items for the Fellowship Missions to assist those in need." Mrs. Huffman and I felt our jaws drop to the floor! It certainly brought tears. That my friends is exactly an example of a WCHS student living out the final five words of our Mission Statement, "enriching the lives of others!"

Thank you Mason for this valuable lesson for all!
