WHS Bands and Guard Class of 2021. In the midst of the continued pandemic and disruption of senior activities for the WHS Bands and Guard Class of 2021, we would LOVE to honor our 2021 bands and guard seniors throughout the year with an "Adopt-a-WHS Band and Guard Senior" program which will be run through a Facebook group. Our hope is to have every WHS bands and guard senior "adopted" by at least two people who will then shower the Senior with TLC at least monthly through graduation.
To request to join the FB group "ADOPT a WHS BANDS and GUARD Senior" please follow THIS link. If you need any help or have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
