BearLand Weekly for 7-12 grades
Lauren Grimes was in the top 16 in the White County Spelling bee. Congratulations!!
Today's featured senior is Dawson Cox. Dawson: I have been at WCC since preschool. My favorite class is Ag shop class. Once I graduate I plan to go to ASU Beebe. The most valuable thing I have learned while attending WCC is family doesn't always mean that they have to be blood related. I will always remember my lunch box being zip tied to the baseball dug out - a lot. The advice I give to students still in high school is to realize you can't wait till the last minute to worry about grades. If you take care of them when you are suppose to then you can have more fun that is stress free.
Our WCC students are on their way to the White County Spelling bee! Good luck and have fun!
Today's featured senior is Anna Parker. Anna: I have been at WCC since 2nd grade. My favorite subject is Agri. Once I graduate I plan to go to dental assistant school. The most valuable thing that I have learned while at WCC is that the teachers are really not out to get you. They want the best for you. I will always remember how loving and caring the teachers and students are. The advice I give to students still in high school is that what you are doing now really matters on how your life will come out. High school is your best years...take advantage of these years- go to prom, etc... - you will miss it.
WCC Pee Wee Cheerleading practice will start back this Friday. Practice will be 3:30-5:00 in the Cub House. Please remember to send your cheerleader clothes to practice in along with tennis shoes.

Today's featured senior is Shelby Foster. Shelby: I have been at WCC since kindergarten. My favorite subject is English. Once I graduate I plan to go to AState and major in theater and go on Broadway. The most valuable thing I have learned while at WCC is..... there is going to be people that don't like you for who you are but you got to be yourself and like yourself for who you are because that is all that matters. I will always remember the teachers who had my back and were there for me. The advice I give to students still in high school is work hard and dream big.
