* Let's Celebrate our WYHS Alumni *

WYHS ALUMNI live across the US & in 13 countries.  So, we don't know when Rams are recognized for their achievements.  In an effort to celebrate WYHS Alumni, please post your or another WYHS alumnus' honors, recognitions, awards, certificates, etc. on the "Alumni Postings" link on the left column.
Honors can be related to: Professional, Educational, Volunteering activities, The Arts, Community Involvement, Non-Profits, Military, etc.  Anyone registered on this website can post these recognitions; or you can send the information to me ( to post them.  I'll also list these postings on the "Ram Stars & Champions" link on homepage.
To start, I posted Stella Hiatt Kane's, 1975, recent "Broadway World Columbus Decade Award".  

* Broad St & Hamilton Rd Improvements *

Whitehall received over $10M in federal & state funds to fix the Broad-Hamilton intersection.  It'll take 9 months & will start in 2022.  To read more details go to the City of Whitehall Updates link on the left column.  

* Super Bowl Honors *


Dominik Hixon is in the WYHS Class of 2002.  He played for the Akron Zips from 2002-2006.  He played for the NY Giants (2007-2012) as a wide receiver when they won 2 Super Bowls (XLII & XLVI).  Three torn ACLs contributed to ending his career.  

The 50th Super Bowl took place in 2016.  The NFL celebrated the players and coaches from the previous 49 Super Bowls and the high schools and communities from which they came. Nearly 3,000 players and head coaches, and more than 2,000 high schools, were recognized this season.

Whitehall-Yearling received their Golden Football in honor of Dominik Hixon who won two Super Bowls with the New York Giants (2007 & 2011).

Because of Dominik’s contributions to the NFL and the Super Bowl, Whitehall-Yearling High School is now officially part of the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll community!

As part of this community, Whitehall-Yearling High School will receive an NFL Character Education Curriculum and are eligible to apply for grants from the NFL Foundation to help support and grow our football program.

Congratulations Dominik and thank you NFL!  You can see this NFL football in the trophy display near the gym & across from our Hall of Fame.  Dominik was inducted in the WYHS Hall of Fame in 2015.  

* Happy New Year Ram Alumni *
