    PIONEERS ON THE MOVE TO BETTER THE SCHOOL

    I had a call this week from Larry Beasley class of 1965 letting me know about a new project for West started by the Hall of Fame Committee.

    West has a new athletic director, David Clark, who is not only dedicated to athletics at West, but working on school pride and ultimately academics. We all know that West High today is vastly different from the school we knew and loved. Students today struggle with poverty, sometimes homelessness and a variety of other factors. Having pride in what we do or where we are can be a tremendous motivator. We understand that because 55 years later we are proud we are Pioneers.

     The Hall of Fame Committee has worked with the school, the school district and architects to design a special area in the school where athletes or teams can be recognized in a permanent manner. USD 259 has agreed to match donations dollar for dollar up to $50,000. While this project was released only this week, the donations (as of today) stand at $11,150. I encourage each of you to take the time to check this out. Pioneer Rick Fitzgerald started the gofundme page that can be found at Fundraiser by Rick Fitzgerald: West High School Hall of Fame. You will find more information there including pictures and artist renderings. It doesn't take much to make a difference. Remember your money will be matched by the school district and it is tax deductible. If you have further questions please contact the athletic director David Clark at (316) 299-3134.

     Stay safe during this very difficult time. I pray that very soon we will be able to gather and celebrate our time at West and the forever friendships we took from there.
