Waitsburg High School will highlight our DW high school athletes and our WHS seniors tonight, Friday, April 10th through the “Be the Light Movement” that has garnered much support throughout the United States.
The "Be the Light Movement" is a national movement to uplift student athletes and seniors by lighting up their football fields and tracks for a set amount of time. I think it could be fair to add that this act of lighting up the football field is for all of our students, as well as our community.
The football field will be lit up at 8:20 p.m.(20:20 military time) for 20 minutes to display encouragement and appreciation to all of our DW athletes who worked so hard to play their sport as part of our Dayton-Waitsburg Athletic Combine, but were not able to this spring due to COVID-19.
Waitsburg School District discourages community members from gathering at the stadium. School District administrators and the DW coaches ask community members to keep these athletes and many others in your thoughts, as schools continue to adjust to the school closure and the challenges of social distancing and the Stay Home, Stay Healthy executive order.
Thank you to all of our students who have who represented the DW Athletic Combine over the course of their time in high school.
