Miss Massillonian and Outstanding Senior Boy
In its 78th year of tradition, the Miss Massillonian and Outstanding Senior Boy assembly was held January 12th at WHS. Did you know that Miss Massillonian started like a beauty pageant, where girls wouuld submit a headshot to movie stars, who would pick the winner? Even a star like Bing Crosby has chosen the winner! This CantonRep article discusses the history of Miss Massillonian, and lists every winner from the last seven and a half decades.

Over the years, Miss Massillonian evolved to include an Outstanding Senior Boy, a more rigorous process of evaluating GPA, attendance, an autobiography, and an interview. There is a faculty committee that does a blind-tally of the points each candidate accumulates, which culminates with a formal assembly. This year's assembly was hosted by Mr. Matt Citron, and included the candidates in their evening gowns and tuxes.

WHS-TV will be rebroadcasting the assembly on MCTV Channel 611 and 11 on Friday, Jan. 20th at 8 PM, then on Jan. 21st and 22nd at 12, 4 and 8 PM.

The winners of Miss Massillonian and Outstanding Senior Boy will be announced at The Academics Awards Seremony in May.

Please click "Read More" for the slideshow of the candidates, and more pictures of the outstanding event.

On January 10th, 47 WHS DECA students competed in the District DECA Tournament at R. G Drage. When the results of this competition are announced on January 25th, we will learn how many of our students will advance to the State DECA Tournament at The Hyatt in Columbus in March. Congratulations go to the team for all their efforts and successes!!!

Veteran's Day at MJHS
The 7th grade Social Studies students at Massillon Junior High School had the opportunity to learn about Veteran’s Day. Since the students will be beginning the Anti-Virus program in January. This was a unique opportunity to learn about service projects. Many of the the 7th grade students have a family member that is currently serving in the United States military forces. Students were not only eager to share their stories, but excited about creating table placemats for the Veterans at the nursing homes. The placemats were delivered to the local nursing homes in the area. Students also created a “Veteran Wall of Stars” to thank our servicemen and women. A great number of students were able to dedicate a star.
