Go Fund Me

Many of you know that last week one of our
seniors, Michael Klaman, was involved in an
accident while traveling on Wildcat Blvd on his
motorcycle.  The good news is while its a long
road to recovery Michael is in good spirits and
has been positively progressing.  
 
We are hoping to help support the family as Michael begins his road to recovery and back to WHS.  
We have set up a GoFundMe for Michael and his family. Click below to donate.

Thank you for you help and support.
Our Wildcat Family is at its finest when we come together to help one of our own.
