Fifty-two students at Westerville South High School were recognized as “Cats with Class” at a breakfast and ceremony held bright and early on Wednesday morning, March 7. “Cats with Class” honors pupils who have demonstrated acts of kindness, good school citizenship, or service, which help make South a wonderful place for learning and teaching. It is jointly sponsored by Westerville South High School and the Westerville South Academic Boosters. The students were joined by their family members, along with teachers and staff who nominated them for this prestigious honor.

Smith, an American Sign Language interpreter, encouraged students to embrace every learning opportunity, saying each individual has the ability to achieve their hopes and dreams.
