Whitesboro High School Holds Spring Renaissance Rally at Wadas Field

Whitesboro High School is making sure that academic excellence does not go unnoticed.

On May 27 at Wadas Field, the high school held the Spring Renaissance Rally for students who had at least an 80 average in each of their classes for the third marking period. A total of 432 students met the criteria and were rewarded with hamburgers, hot dogs, French fries, fried dough and a “Whitesboro Warrior” wrist lanyard.

“The mission of our program is to recognize, reward, and celebrate academic excellence,” said Renaissance Committee Chairperson and high school math teacher Mr. David Jecko. “We strive to increase student performance, promote an attitude of success, and strengthen the partnership between Whitesboro High School and our community.”

The Renaissance Committee was able to pay for the event thanks to generous monetary donations from the New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association (John Harmon), the Optimist Club of Whitestown, the Whitesboro Teachers Association, the Whitesboro Employees Union, and the Whitesboro Administrators Organization.

Dean’s Concessions, which is owned and operated by Lisa Dean, a social studies teacher at the high school, catered the Spring Rally. Members of the Optimist Club of Whitestown and more than 40 teachers volunteered their time during the rally.

“I would like to thank our administration, teachers, and staff for their continued support of the Renaissance Rallies because without them, it would not be possible to hold these events,” added Jecko.

Congratulations to all of Whitesboro High School’s students who not only strive for, but meet, the high school’s standards for academic excellence.
