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.

When Miss Anne Wilmert took over as the Dance Instructor at WCHS this year, she had very few requests.  She had great facilities and a nice enrollment of young people who looked forward to learning the finer points of Dance.  However, as the school year continued, she indicated the need for practice bars for her students.  The cost for such bars are very expensive.  That's when correspondence with Mr. Chris Morr, WACC Welding instructor, began.  Mr. Morr was consulted about the possibility of his students building the extra bars.  Mr. Morr agreed to do this project. The Welding students worked hard to create a wonderfully, useful product for Miss Wilmert and her dance students at a fraction of the cost of retail bars.  Thank you Miss Willmert, Mr. Morr, and students.  What a great example of collaboration!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Hoosiers Helping Heroes project.

We collected over 2,500 powered drink packets and wrote over 900 Christmas Cards!!!

Awesome work!!! The representatives picking up the cards and drinks were thrilled and excited with our effort and contributions!

The WCHS Advanced Theater Arts Class recently performed a version of the play Cinderella here at the PAC for our Washington Elementary students. The class will also be traveling to other elementary schools to perform this play. Our friends from Washington enjoyed the performance and the fun cast of characters played by WCHS students. This is the major semester project for our high school students. Congratulations students and Mrs. McAfee!

On Monday, November 11th, WCHS was proud to host (from left to right) Mr. Don Locke, U.S. Air Corp., WWII P51 Mustang Pilot in the South Pacific, Mr. Jack Anglin, U.S. Army, WWII Battle of the Bulge veteran, and Mr. Mike Valentine, U.S. Army, Vietnam War veteran. We wish to thank these gentlemen for bringing a piece of living history to our school and students as featured speakers at the 2013 Veterans Day Celebration. We also thank you each of you for your service and commitment to our freedom!

Congratulations to each of you on the completion of the first quarter of the 2013-2014 school year! I hope that each of you feel good about your academic progress thus far. If not, you still have time to turn around the semester as we start term II on Thursday.

All freshmen need to report to SRT first thing tomorrow for attendance. Following attendance, you will be released to the PAC for an important Josten’s convocation, followed by your class picture, an inspirational message from Mr. Akers, and a review of the first quarter by Mr. Snyder.

All sophomore and junior students are to report directly to your testing room for tomorrow’s important PSAT testing. The PSAT is a very important test that will help determine future class placement and future scholarship information for college.

Seniors you are not to be here in the morning tomorrow. You may job shadow, provide community service, or visit a potential college, university, or trade school. Any senior that will need the full day will be required to produce a note from that school’s admissions office.
