From the Principal

Willard High School student, Robert Mitchals, will be running for National DECA Office in the upcoming months for the Central Region Vice President. Robert has been enlisting the assistance of several leaders in order to gain knowledge, strategy, and funding to run a strong campaign. If successful, Robert would represent Willard High School, Willard Schools, his community, state, and region which include multiple states and part of Canada, all of next year. He would have opportunity for speaking engagements all across the country and in front of thousands of other students. This is a great honor and opportunity for Robert and Willard to shine. We are excited and proud!

Prom is Saturday, April 5, at the Oasis in Springfield. The prom committee members and teaching staff have done a terrific job of preparing and I am confident for another fun, successful, and safe evening.

April 12th, WHS will be hosting the spring ACT. Every seat has been reserved. The most recent report from the ACT Teacher Action Committee shared that the trend is to prepare better and potentially take the ACT 2 or more times to achieve the best score possible. WHS has several opportunities for ACT tutoring which can be viewed from our website or by contacting the guidance office.

EOC's are coming April 21 - May 2. Students and staff are reviewing and making final preparations for another successful year of assessments.

Congratulations to the baseball Tigers on winning the championship of the Willard Lead-Off Tournament by defeating Rogersville in the championship game 11-1! This runs their record to 5-1 on the young season. They will be in Branson tonight playing Brookland HS at 6:00pm and then Green County Tech at 8:30pm. They will then play at Hollister at 9:00 a.m. vs. Pocahantas HS. Next week they will host Parkview and Miller on Saturday.

Congratulations to the Lady Tiger soccer team on their victory over HIllcrest this week! Their game vs. Joplin last night was cancelled due to weather and there has been no make-up date determined at this point. Tonight the girls will travel to Marshfield with the varsity playing at 5:00pm. There will be no JV game tonight. Next week they will travel to Bolivar on Monday, host Branson on Tuesday, and travel to Poplar Bluff on Friday.

The track team just can't catch a break with the weather as the second varsity meet of the year was cancelled last night in Carthage. It will be made up next Monday.

Good luck to the golf team as they will be playing in the Springfield Invitational at Hickory Hills CC on Monday!

On Saturday, March 29th, Willard High School was the host site for the MCCGA Winter Guard Championships for 60 groups from Illinois, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, and Missouri. Several thousand spectators and competitors passed through WHS. We are very proud of the Willard Middle School (3rd place), and Willard High School (5th place) Winter Guards for their performances and results. This is the season-ending show for everyone. We also want to thank the Army of volunteers who helped to put on this event for the 8th year in a row.

It's Good To Be A Tiger!
