Dr. Garred Sr. served on the Whiting School Board for 30 years. The Whiting High School National Honor Society wanted to honor his memory by planting this tree and hanging this plaque in the courtyard of the Whiting Community School. Dr. Garred Sr. worked a lifetime caring for the residents and students of Whiting through his medical practice and his time as a board of education member. We appreciate his many contributions over the years.

The 2017 Whiting Warrior Cross Country Season is now underway as the Whiting Cross Country runners now have two meets under their belts. There were some changes this year as Alex Lamp (New K-12 P.E. Teacher/Athletic Director) has taken on coaching cross country for the 2017 season. Coach Lamp has had experience with Cross Country and Track while in college and is excited about being the new cross country coach this season.
Whiting Cross Country practice began in the early morning on Monday August 14th with about 10 students participating in the first practice (and the number of students keeps growing!) Students worked hard preparing for the first meet in the Riverside area of Sioux City. The first meet took place on Thursday August 25th. Junior High runners couldn't participate in this meet so it was only Boys & Girls Varsity and Junior Varsity High School runners. The course in Sioux City didn't have very many hills so the first meet of the season started off with a much easier terrain for the runners.
Here are the results from the Tuesday August 29th meet in Logan:
Boys 5K Varsity
51 Hildreth, EJ 10 Whiting High School 19:46
78 Hildreth, Marvin 12 Whiting High School 21:06

On Sunday April 9th, High School Spanish 3 and Spanish 4 students left at 8:00 AM to travel to Texas for a week long Spanish Trip. Amanda McGrain, Whiting High School Spanish Teacher, and two other chaperones drove 14 students them on their way South to Texas.
The students then traveled 6 hours to San Antonio, Texas. Students stopped at a fast food restaurant along the way there for lunch and then visited the Alamo in the afternoon. Students had a guided tour of the Alamo. Following the Alamo, students visited the local Spaghetti Warehouse for another great meal. Students then took a boat tour called the "River Walk." They saw lots of gorgous while on the boat ride.
The first stop on the trip was in Oklahoma City where the students visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial. They learned about the bombing at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. They also stopped at a local restaurant for a great meal. Students then stayed at a hotel over night in the city.
The next day, students got a tour of the San Antonio Art Museum. The students learned about Spanish culture and were shown some art that was on display in the museum and learned some background on the art pieces. San Antonio is also home to a Latin Market Square where students were allowed to look around in different Spanish markets and buy things that you probably couldn't buy back in Iowa. Following the Market Square students visited a Mexican Restaurant called La Tierra.
Thanks to everyone who supported this trip for our students and we hope to keep the trip going for future students!
