2020 Hall of Fame is Delayed
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WYHS has chosen to forego this year’s 2020 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. With the constraints of social distancing and opportunity for a virtual ceremony, we felt it would diminish the experience for our inductees. They will wait to recognize inductees the way they deserve to be recognized in 2021.

*Band & Choir Rooms - Now WYHS Technology Center*

Many of us spent hundereds of hours in the band & choir rooms during our years at WYHS.  Today, those rooms have been converted into the new WYHS Technology Center.  To see the photos, go to the Photo Gallery on the left column.

* Norton Crossing Update *

Norton Crossing is a mixed-use development that replaced Fairlawn Apartments/Royal Landing & other vacant buildings at Broad & Hamilton Roads corner.  Norton Crossing's new restaurant, 'The Old Bag of Nails Pub' opened on Sept. 14. 'The Lofts at Norton Crosing' is leasing 1 & 2 bedroom apartments with many named after Whitehall streets!  To see more info about this development, go to the 'Ram Business Owner's' tab on the left column.
