“But what reputation Wasson High School

earns in the future can in no way be

assured by its name, even if it were

the most illustrious name in history. 

The opportunity is yours to create a tradition

and make a reputation for your school;

it is yours to write

on the blank pages of the future.”

~ Roy J. Wasson
