Dear Wilburton Alumni,

Welcome back Wilburton High School Alumni for our tradition of joining together each year on Easter Weekend to renew past friendships, relive past memories, and honor our school.  Please make plans to come and celebrate with us.

Besides your Saturday night banquet, pancake breakfast, and various class reunions, we have planned a very special event for this alumni weekend.  I am excited to tell you that our new elementary complex is completed, and we will be hosting an Open House for all of the elementary buildings on Saturday, April 20, 2019 from 9-11. All community members and alumni are invited to attend and see what this great community has provided for our young people. The design for our new elementary complex was created with the idea of cherishing the past while successfully moving into the future.  Please stop by on Saturday morning.

Also, I am pleased to announce that at the February meeting the Wilburton School Board voted to honor, name and dedicate the Wilburton High School Gym to “Wilburton--A Dedicated
Community.” Additionally, they approved the naming of the basketball court as the Coach Sam Taylor Basketball Floor and the gym’s hospitality room as the Charles Adams Hospitality Room.

This year we will graduate and welcome as new alumni 48 seniors. They are a small class in numbers, but dedicated to Wilburton High School and very “faithful” to the purple and white. The graduation of this senior class will leave a huge void, but I am proud to say they will be WHS Alumni.

Once again, welcome home. Please come by and visit the school especially for our Open House; we would love to see you.
