The list of classmate provided in this website is based on the WHS 1972  Yearbook. WHS tells us that they do not maintain a list of graduates. If we'd known that years ago we might have simply quit school and told folks that we graduated! Ha! Bottom line is to contact either Callie or Donny if you find that the list of classmates is not accurate.
