You’ll never forget the moments you spent in High School. There will be days you sit and reminisce about how you were ASB President. You’ll think about the teacher you were hoping not to get, but who pulled something out of you and pushed you further than you thought you could go. You’ll remember the big basketball game where you made that half court shot, or even the times when you sat on Senior Hill. These are the moments that my brothers and I reflect on. We will never forget the impact that Washington High School had on shaping the people we’ve become. We are thankful to all the teachers, classmates, and experiences and want to give back to the students who are blessed to walk through the halls and breezeways of WHS campus.
