                      The WSHS Boosters would like to welcome everyone
                                    to the 2014-2015 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 
       leadership, citizenship and personal development among all students.

Scholar's Night Dinner:  Prior to the Scholar's Night Awards Ceremony, the Academic Boosters offers a Scholar's Night Dinner for a minimal cost:  includes dinner, bread, drink. 


Scholar's Night:  Each year in October, South honors last year's freshmen, sophomores and juniors.   Awards bestowed include Merit Scholar recognitions (3.3 - 3.699 GPA) and Academic Letters  (3.7 - 4.0+ GPA).  In addition, thirty-three WSHS Academic Boosters Departmental Excellence Awards are given per grade level in the subject areas 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 "Cats with Class".  Approximately 80 students in total are recognized as "Cats with Class" in November and March.  "Cats with Class" honors students who have demonstrated acts of kindness, good school citizenship, or service and thereby, help make South High School a wonderful place for learning and teaching.  Students are joined by family members,along with teachers and staff who nominate them for this prestigious honor at a breakfast hosted by the Academic Boosters. 


Freshman Merit Certificates:  The Academic Boosters award Freshman Merit Certificates to freshman students who earn a 3.3 or above CUM GPA after the first two quarters of the current school year.


Teacher/Staff Appreciation:  Most months, the Academic Boosters provides snacks for the teacher/staff meetings.  During the month of April, the Academic Boosters sponsors 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:  The Academic Boosters honors the Senior Scholarship winners and eleven seniors for the Departmental Excellence Awards.
