WHS was one of 37 Ohio schools who recently received the Purple Star Award from the Ohio Department of Education for their commitment to serving students and families of current service members.


“Students with a parent in the military may experience six or more different schools from kindergarten through 12th grade,” said Brittany Larkin, school counselor and military family liaison at WHS. “It is my hope that through the Purple Star Designation program and training, we can further our commitment to meeting the unique needs of students and families connected to our nation’s military.”

You can learn more about our efforts to support our students of military families in a recent News Journal article. We are #HurricaneProud of our WHS staff for taking on this initiative for our students.
