The addition of a Gay-Straight Alliance Club at WHS is long overdue. At the most recent board meeting, USD 329 approved the founding of a Gay-Straight Alliance club. Officially, the board approved the consent agenda which included the item “Per BOE policy & Federal law grant equal access to a non-school sponsored Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) club.” There was no controversy in the discussion for the establishment of this club, and there really shouldn’t be.
After working as the WHS Spanish Teacher for two and a half years, David Amer is adding another role in the district this year.
Amer is now also the district mental health liaison for WHS who works with Crosswinds, an organization focused on giving therapy to those who need it within the school run by the Kansas Department of Education.
With school being transitioned to completely online due to the current stay at home order as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, WHS coaching staff and players took time to reflect on the season that could have been.
With the 2020 season, the baseball team had some changes to the coaching staff. David Amer and Colby Harris joined the team as assistant coaches.
“I was really enjoying getting back into the baseball groove and working with all of the guys,” Amer said. “It sucks we don't get to enjoy baseball this spring, but if it helps keep family members alive, it's what we need to do.”
