Updated Alumni Directory in the Works

The WHS Alumni Association is going to publish an updated alumni directory to coincide with the 175th anniversary of the Massillon Public Schools in 2023. Work on this directory will start with the updating of addresses in January and February. Alumni will receive post cards with directions on how to go about submitting changes.

These addresses are strictly for school use for reunions and individual use to keep in touch with friends. With the White Pages becoming obsolete it is becoming more difficult to keep contact information among classmates.

The books will be available for purchase and are due out by the Fall of 2022.

Please cooperate with this project and if you have any questions call the association at 330-830-3901 x51617.

Update your address electronically via the Alumni Information Form to ensure you receive your postcard and further information.

77th Performance of Handel's Messiah

Handel's "Messiah" 77th Presentation Sunday, December 12th, 2021 at 3pm, will be the seventy-seventh presentation of Handel's Messiah by the Washington High School choirs. After not being able to get together last year for our tradition, we are so excited to come back together! Our students are truly excited to once again be a part of this tradition, one of your legacies! This performance will be notably different as we continue moving into a new style of performance. For the past three to five years, the choir program has discussed the problem areas of continuously putting on this performance. With those areas showing little change despite our best pushes, we have designed a new program to interact with our alumni and our community. As always, choir alumni will form an important part of this chorus, and our tradition. Call your alumni friends and invite them to join you in singing this season!

PLEASE register by November 19th. This season, a registration fee of $10.00 will be required. This allows the department the necessary upkeep on choir materials. We are grateful for your support. Simply bring a check, made payable to the Massillon Board of Education.

Massillon Schools Shine

At a time when most of Ohio's city school districts struggled, our Massillon City Schools under the leadership of Superintendent Paul Salvino ('97) remained open and fully operational with just a little district-wide "online" instruction during the Covid-19 surge in December and again around the faculty inoculation days. From the very beginning of the 2020-21 school year students were given the...

The Mary Nemeth Strukel ('54) Scholarships

The late Mary Strukel was one of the most ardent Massillon Tiger supporters and as a member of the Massillon Board of Education she worked hard to make sure student success continued in the academics, arts, and athletics of our district. One of Mary's projects was establishing the "Obie" insignia on Ohio license plates for those who wanted it. There were a lot of hoops to jump through and various...
