Important Upcoming Dates at WHS:
Whitewater High School established the Minneiska Chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) in 1956 to inspire enthusiasm for scholarship, stimulate a desire to render service, promote worthy leadership, and encourage the development of character in high school students. NHS has become a prestigious organization ranking high among college admission officers, scholarship committees, high school faculty & administrators, students, parents and residents of our community. For many, selection as a member of the National Honor Society is the pinnacle of achievement in school. This honor, recognized throughout the nation, is both the public recognition of outstanding accomplishments and the private commitment to continued excellence on the part of each new member. Twelve juniors and seniors will become members of the National Honor Society at Whitewater High School this year during a virtual Induction Ceremony presented in late December. These students have demonstrated outstanding qualities of leadership, character, scholarship and service to their school and community and have worked extremely hard to achieve at the highest level in school. Congratulations to the new members of the Whitewater High School National Honor Society: Alayna Alvarado, Olive Coburn, Arno Crowley, Carter Friend, Brock Grosinske, Cooper Hammond, Nikita Hartzheim, Savannah Hill, Avery Hintz, Denver Isbell, Audrey Mayer, and Sophia Walton. Senior members inducted in December 2019 include Reilly Aschenbrener, Grace Black, Lydia Bols, Jenna Caldwell- Secretary, Kacie Carollo – Treasurer, David Cushman, Carson Ellenwood – President, Elizabeth Katzman, Kiyla Kopecky, Leiha Kuhnke, Cora Linos, Hannah O’Brien, Jazmine Peterson, Catherine Skindingsrude – Vice President, Ella Smith, Amanda Tovar, Diego Tovar, Carter Waelchli, Abigail Weeden, Abigail Wildenberg, Trenton Zahn, and Molly Zimmermann.

National Honor Society members Abigail Wildenberg and Leiha Kuhnke helped Cozette Moffett decorate the windows of her business, "Cabinets & Design by Cozette," for the holidays on Saturday, November 14. A great way to inspire a festive holiday spirit for the community of Whitewater!
National Honor Society members are inspiring a love of learning by recording themselves reading books to elementary school students in Whitewater.
The Whippets started out strong at State! Our Medley relay (Sophia Fanshaw, Ella Houwers, Grace Foucault, Amber Krebs) finished in 9th place with a 1.63 second time drop and moved up one place from where they were seeded with a time of 1:54.54. Grace Foucault raced well in the 200 Freestyle, placing 13th overall! It was great to see this sophomore qualify in two individual events plus two relays! After finishing in second place last year in the 200 Individual Medley, Ella Houwers took charge and raced hard to win this year. Way to go Ella! Ella’s time of 2:06.90 was a season best time! Grace Foucault rocked her 2nd individual event, the 100 Backstroke. Grace continued to drop time after a great Sectional race and re-broke her own School Record with a 1:00.97 winning her heat and finished in 9th overall! Ella raced to her third State Title in the 100 Breaststroke! Ella posted a 1:05.27 season best time! Congratulations on four very successful years of swimming at Whitewater High School. The Whippets ended the night on a high note finishing 8th in the 400 Freestyle Relay (Foucault, Krebs, Fanshaw, Houwers) dropping 4.79 seconds from last week’s Sectional time with a 3:47.68. All four swimmers posted best times with their splits. Grace Foucault is now 3rd overall on the Top Ten All Times list in the 100 Freestyle with her lead off split of 56.27. Seniors Amber Krebs and Sophia Fanshaw both dropped under a minute on their splits finishing their high school swim careers with fantastic swims. Ella Houwers rounded out a great day anchoring the relay in a 52.98. I am so proud of these ladies and Brooke Bazeley our alternate for their hard work this season and for their success at the State meet.
