Congratulations DCAC Cohort 2016

The DCAC (Destination College Advising Corps) cohort of first generation college going WGHS students had their signing party to celebrate their selection and official signing to a college acceptance letter with family over dinner at WGHS. Tough decisions were made by these bright young men and women who are already making a difference and inspiring us. So many caring people, family, friends, and staff have given to support these students but no one more than the students themselves who deserve all the greatness that they are continually becoming. We are proud!
