Today, West Allis Central is illustrating the dangers of drunk driving in two ways. First, there is a crash car on display in the front of the school to show students a realistic consequence of drunk driving. Secondly, WAC PAC mentors and volunteers from the student body will participate in Ghost Day. Every twenty minutes, a student volunteer will become a “victim” of drunk driving, and wear a victim tee shirt. That student vows to be silent the rest of the day. By the day’s end, there will be 28 victims, the number of people who die each day due to alcohol and drug-impaired driving. We hope that seeing the crash car and classmates become victims of drunk driving will be a sobering reminder to make healthy choices related to alcohol and drugs.
Central Student Wins Major Honor
West Allis Central’s Tre Nowaczynski has been named as the recipient of the ACT’s College and Career Readiness Campaign Student Readiness Award. The College and Career Readiness Campaign awards recognize- across the education and workforce continuum- exemplary college and career readiness efforts of a high school student, a high school, a community college, and an employer. The award winners will be recognized at the State Capitol on May 6. Wisconsin is one of seven states participating in the campaign’s inaugural year. This is a great honor for Tre and West Allis Central High School. As the single Wisconsin high school student selected for this award Tre has a great opportunity to be recognized at the ACT National Gala in Washington, D.C.
As we begin readying our families and school for the end of the year, it is difficult to think that our seniors will be walking across the graduation stage and exiting West Allis Central High School for the last time as a student. I want to take a moment to thank all of our seniors for their leadership and dedication to Central High School. Click for more...
