A near 50 Year Tradition – THE BRIDGE – Sellers Park

The WHS Class of 2022 Senior Crew worked hard this weekend and it was hot! The Bridge is done and here are some pics taken since Friday. This crew, along with some parent participants, stripped the bridge down, applied a new base coat, repainted all the railing, and stencilled, one letter at a time, the names of the seniors on the team and the senior cheerleaders, and the senior dancers, down the middle of the BRIDGE. Above and beyond!


Class of 2022’s Stellar Young, painted the Crusader Head on the bridge, freehand…totally awesome Stellar! That and the entire bridge looks phenomenal. Be proud of all those that helped – they made it happen. They are Crusaders!


Those who also contributed:

Javan and Cheryl Wright, Justin and Jaime Elmore, the Elmore boys, Trenton, Colton, and Jack – all future Crusaders!! Their older sister, Mikayla, along with other 2022 classmates, Ali Zeka, Josey Wolf, Hagen Wright, Dustyn Schettler, RJ Clift, Chase Koehler, Trey Greenlee, Keeli Ramirez, Hayden Brown, and Blake McCreary all pitched in at different times throughout the past 3 days.


A few of the pics are courtesy pics and are marked accordingly. Thank you Jaime and Mikayla for those!!
