ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Class of 1960 will celebrate its 60th Reunion on Saturday October 3, 2020 at Owl Creek Country Club. If you are a classmate or know of any 1960 graduates, please sign up and/or encourage them to sign up on the WHS Alumni website, 1960 Profiles, to get updated information leading up to the reunion. We lack current information on 60% of our 320 classmates. Any detective work you can do to help more of the old gang participate in the upcoming festivities will undoubtedly be appreciated by those lost sheep (or maybe wildcats) that are found.
Thanks
Steve Graef

Dear Fellow Waggener Alumni,

The Waggener Alumni Association has begun a scholarship program for deserving seniors who plan on attending college, a trade school, or enlisting in the military. The students complete an essay outlining their experiences at Waggener, what they will do with the scholarship, and why they feel they are deserving. The scholarships are $500 each and are decided upon by the WHS Alumni Board of Directors. Four scholarships were awarded this past May from funds donated by some anonymous alumni. This was our inaugural award and we need your help to improve and continue the program. We plan on using a contact person from each graduating class to get this message out to as many Waggener alumni as possible. Donations to the fund can be in any amount you feel comfortable with - and they are tax deducible. Every little bit helps and no amount is too small. - it all goes to a great cause. The initial donations last year ranged from $25 to $500.

We encourage all Alumni to participate in this program designed to help Waggener students advance their education - make your checks out to "Waggener Alumni Association" and add "Scholarship Fund Class of XX" in the memo line. We will track all donations by class. Mail checks to:

Nancy Gary, Treasurer
Waggener Alumni Association
Waggener High School
330 S. Hubbards Lane
Louisville, Ky 40207

Thanks for your help in advance. If you have questions, please contact me at butchriley1@verizon.net or Alumni President Lori Brown at loricbrown@bellsouth.net

The Wildcat Food Den is an in school food pantry serving every student in the school.  

75% or more of our students qualify for free breakfast and lunch.  Many students don't have enough food at home or maybe none at all.   The Alumni Association supports, funds, and runs the Wildcat Food Den right in the school.  This is a room filled with shelf stable items, frozen meals, fresh produce, juice, milk, and personal care items. We are open 1:45-2:45 every Tuesday and Friday.  The students can come in to grocery shop, FOR FREE, and take food home for themselves and their families.  In December we served 520 children, 102 adults, 15 senior citizens, and distributed more than 1,500 pounds of food.

Dare to Care provides fresh produce on a weekly basis.  Plehn's bakery donates a generous amount of their beautiful breads, rolls, and buns.  The Alumni and our generous members of the community have donated and supported our efforts.  

Healthy, well fed, students are better equipped to learn, to thrive, to be kind, and to be happy.  Feed the kids, better the community.
