  • Featured Wisco Champion for January

    The featured Wisco Champion for January 2019 is Da'Sha Wilbern ('11).

    I joined Wisco Champions because I love WLHS. The most important way Wisco has helped me was showing me how to stay close to God. When I went to college, Wisco prepared me for college-level classes, and I even filled in to teach in some of my classes as a teacher's aid. The reason why I wanted to join Wisco Champs was to make sure someone has the same, or even better, education than I received. Since I can't be there to volunteer, why not donate?
