LTC Kirkbride and 1SG Hatchel Plaque Dedication WCHS Honors JROTC Leaders

On November 9, 2018, WCHS honored two special members of the Ram family. The hard work and dedication of LTC Wayne Kirkbride and 1SGT Joseph Hatchel were commemorated with bronze memorial plaques affixed to the exterior wall of the JROTC Rifle Range. LTC Kirkbride and 1SG Hatchel gave selflessly to the young men and women of Worth County. They molded and shaped the lives of countless students over their tenure at Worth County High School. LTC Kirkbride served for 22 years as an infantry officer and a Special Forces officer. After his retirement from the Army, he became the first Senior Army Instructor of the Worth County High School Ram Battalion. In addition to serving JROTC, LTC Kirkbride founded the wrestling program at WCHS and coached Cross Country. He led both of those programs with the same passion and dedication that he showed JROTC, resulting in both being highly respected programs across the state. LTC Kirkbride held the position of SAI for eight years before becoming a Science teacher here at WCHS. 1SGT Hatchel joined the Ram Battalion in 2006. In addition to his duties in the classroom, he coached the Drill team and was an instrumental part of the Raider team. His squads and platoon consistently finished among the top in the state during his tenure. Furthermore, the Ram Battalion earned Honor Unit with Distinction each year that 1SG Hatchel was with our program. In an effort to support the high school JROTC, 1SG Hatchel established a Leadership program at Worth County Middle School.  We are so thankful for the impact these two great men had on WCHS. #RamPride

Georgia Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) is a residential summer program for gifted and talented high school students who will be rising juniors and seniors during the program.  The program offers instruction that is significantly different from the typical high school classroom, and that is designed to provide students with academic, cultural, and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders.

GHP is held in mid-summer (mid-June to mid-July) as a residential educational experience on a college or university campus.  Students attend classes in the mornings and afternoons in specific areas of study, and they participate in a wide variety of social and instructional opportunities every evening.

Competition Cheer Called to Care WCHS Competition Cheerleaders Raise Money for Called to Care

Every year, cheer parents go out into the community asking for donations for raffle items for our annual Last Chance Cheer Classic. Many of our local downtown businesses support this. We sell raffle tickets for a dollar during the Last Chance Competition, and all money raised goes towards a good cause in our local community. We also take money raised for shout-outs, lib offs and jump offs. Shout-outs cost a dollar per shout-out to recognize individual cheerleaders as they take the mat. The lib off is a competition in which different squads compete by holding a lib in an extension for the longest amount of time. The jump-off is a competition in which cheerleaders take turns throwing their best-connected jumps (3 in a row). Past cheerleaders judge the jump-off and they look at height and execution of the jumps. The lib off entree is $10 per team, and the jump-off is $5 per cheerleader. Sue Youngblood began this fundraising tradition many years ago, and we have kept this tradition going because it is a great way to give back to the community. We choose different charities each year and this year we chose “Called to Care.” We are proud to say that we were able to present Ms. Kelly McCord with a check for $360.00.
