Alumnus of the Year Award

The Wellsboro High School Alumni Association established the Alumnus of the Year Award in 1996 to recognize an outstanding Wellsboro Alumnus. The Alumni Council solicits candidates each year from the anniversary Alumni Classes. Graduating Alumni are eligible. The Alumni Council will select one recipient and that person will be honored at the Annual WHS Alumni Banquet on the Saturday of Memorial Weekend each year. A Plaque is on display in the Wellsboro High School with all recipients and the recipient receives a plague.

An Outstanding Alumnus may be someone who has excelled in their career, contributed to their community, contributed to our school, performed an exceptional feat or made a difference in the lives of others.

Former Recipients include:

1996 Betty Coolidge Frazier Class of 1941
