The WSHS Boosters would like to welcome everyone
to the 2013-2014 school year. 
The WSHS Academic Boosters is the organization that supports
the reason why our kids attend South - ACADEMICS !!! 
It's who we are and why YOU should become a member. 
If you haven't done so already, please consider joining the TEAM:
Together Everyone Achieves More. 
Show your son(s) and/or daughter(s) that you believe in him/her.
Our mission is to promote, encourage, and recognize achievements in academics,
citizenship and personal development among all students.
Scholar's Night:  Each year in October, South honors last year's freshmen, sophomores and juniors.  Awards bestowed included the Merit Scholar recognition (3.3 - 3.699 GPA) and Academic Letters (3.7 - 4.0+ GPA).  Thirty-three WSHS Academic Booster Departmental Excellence Awards are given in the subjectareas of Art, Business, World Languages, Physical Education, Health, Supplemental Services, Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies and Music.  As the academic supporting organization, the Academic Boosters donate a gift of achievement on behalf of Westerville South to each of these students.
Cats with Class:  The Academic Boosters support, organize and conduct a program called "Cats with Class".  Students are recognized as "Cats with Class" at a breakfast in November and March.  "Cats with Class" honors students who have demonstrated acts of kindness, good school citizenship, or service, which help make South High School a wonderful place for learning and teaching.  Students are joined by thier family members, along with teachers and staff who nominate them for this prestigious honor.
Teacher/Staff Appreciation:  During the month of April, the Academic Boosters sponsor a teacher/staff appreciation luncheon.  This event is an opportunity to thank teachers and staff for all that they do for the students/parents of the school.
Senior Scholarships:  The Academic Boosters support graduating seniors electing to continue their education by offering a minimum of three scholarships based on funding available May of the academic year:  The Wildcat Excellence Scholarship, The Wildcat Success Scholarship and The Wildcat Perseverance Scholarship. 
Evening for Excellence:  It is at this evening event that the Academic Boosters honor the senior Scholarship winners and eleven Departmental Excellence Awards senior winners. 
We are committed to making a difference at Westerville South High School.
