WHS Boys' Basketball Senior Game was an emotional one for players and fans... On Wednesday, February 3, the boys' beloved manager and number one fan suited up to join his team on the court for his last WHS Boys' Varsity regular season game. As soon as the buzzer sounded, five talented guys flooded the court and then celebrated when Nate Jewell made the first two points of the game with a pretty, arced shot to the basket against the Rangers of Telstar. The Ramblers went on to battle and capture another victory in their respectable collection paving the way for a strong position in the upcoming conference battle that will ensue at the Augusta Civic Center during February vacation. Great job, boys--yet one more reason among so many that we are "Proud
to be a Rambler, YES. WE. ARE."

As a result of being selected as a “School That Shines”, the WMS Discover 101 students were invited to the Margaret Chase Smith library/museum in Skowhegan to share their Random Acts of Kindness. They also learned more about Margaret Chase Smith’s desire to instill in young people the importance of service and what an important figure she was in our country and in the state of Maine. The class received $100.00 to carry on Smith’s mission to do service for others which we will begin working on as a group in the next weeks.
