The donation of blood can save many lives, and the demand for blood is always high. For the past few years, Wesleyan has hosted a blood drive through the American Red Cross. This year, the blood drive was hosted on Jan. 31 in honor of fifth grader Lex Stolle. Keep Reading
“It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas” on Wesleyan campus, a season that brings family, friends and communities together. The magic of the Christmas season not only brings joy and cold weather to Wesleyan, but it also is a start to the makings of many Christmas memories. Responses were collected throughout the school from fifth grader Garrison Dallam to Head of School Chris Cleveland. The Wesleyan community was able to share their personal views on Christmas and what their holiday favorites are when this season approaches. A nine-question survey was sent out to the high school to ask what students preferred the most during the Christmas season.
When Christmas comes around, the Wesleyan community goes over the top to decorate, more than any other season. Over 50 trees get put on display, thanks to the Wesleyan parents, and every student brings in an ornament to represent themselves. “I love it when we decorate all of campus. I think it looks beautiful,” Cleveland said. Junior Elizabeth Bertram said, “My favorite thing that Wesleyan does during Christmas is play music throughout the halls during the school day.”
Wesleyan’s mission is to strive towards offering service however possible. Service comes in many different forms and for various reasons. As Head of School Chris Cleveland said, “We seek to install a heart of service to our students.” On Nov. 11, the Wesleyan community gathered to celebrate a specific type of service: the service of the many veterans who have fought to keep our country safe.
After five years of serving as a high school principal, Jeff Plunk has decided to step down to become the head of Ascension Episcopal School located in Lafayette, LA.
Plunk began his first year at Wesleyan 12 years ago. Plunk said, “I fell in love with the Christian mission, mission trips, coaching and teaching, but truth be told, I originally came to Wesleyan to be the head wrestling coach. Once I got here, I realized there is a lot more than just wrestling.”
The Wesleyan Gala took place on March 2 at the Loews Hotel in Atlanta. The Annual Wesleyan Gala is an event that brings the community together. It is a time to dress up and celebrate what Wesleyan has done over the past few years.
The Gala is made up of a live and silent auction, dinner and band.
There are hundreds of people that show their support for Wesleyan at the Gala. Teachers and faculty attend, along with alumni, alumni parents and friends of the Wesleyan community.
