Note From Executive Secretary
 
I have finally got around to updating the website. Not very much, but some. This has been a very busy year for some of our local members with getting the caferteria roof  and ceiling repaired (finally!), trying to recuit alumni from non graduating classes, and keeping campus maintained. Ben has been diligently working to jumpstart the renovation of the high school building. We are doing our best to maintain this organization for all the generations of students that have past through the hallways of WCTS-NWHS and community of Warren County.
