"It's a Grand New Flag"

Prior to the kickoff for the annual meeting with our archrivals, the Canton McKinley Bulldogs, the WHS Alumni Association was pleased to present to the Massillon Board of Education and to Paul Brown Tiger Stadium a new flag of the United States of America. This flag is dedicated to all past, present and future alumni of Massillon Washington High School.

The flag was made possible by the continued generosity of members of the WHS Alumni Association. Through you we can do small things around the high school campus that mean a great deal to the school community. Presenting this flag honors the generations that have made and sustained our football pageantry as the "Greatest Show in High School Football".

We also support other areas of WHS student life in the drama club, choir, band, annual musical as well as homecoming queen and court. Your contributions assist the WHS Distinguished Citizens event and the administering of WHS Alumni Scholarships to which this year will include those students named as Miss Massillonian and Outstanding Senior Boy.

Make no mistake, we don't do things halfway on your behalf! This flag is huge and impressive. Prior to the first playoff game hosted at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium when the flag was hoisted during the presentation of the National Anthem by the Tiger Swing Band, commentators for Ohio Sports Network covering the game stated it was the most impressive American flag they had seen at any Ohio sporting event.

As always, thank you for your support of the WHS Alumni Association!!

Bob Wenzel
WHSAA Board President
