Class of 2012
The word that best described the inaugural class of Woodgrove High School is “Change”.
Change was the theme for the talks at the graduation ceremony on June 12 and is the best word to describe our years of high school.

We changed schools three times in four years
We changed principals twice – Mr. Sam Shipp is now the 3rd principal of Woodgrove High School.
We are now changing from high school students to working adults or students of high learning.

We have set the tone for Woodgrove and established traditions. We have left a legacy.
We look forward to our return as alum (Homecoming Oct. 19, 2012) to see the changes future generations bring to Woodgrove.
The Class of 2012 began “The Wild”.
Wolverines will continue to be on the Prowl.
Thank you to all who have supported us, provided opportunities for us, guided us and saw us through all the changes. SUCCESS!! We are Graduates.
Best wishes to members of the Class of 2012, their families, the community, WHS and to all future Wolverines.
May Team Woodgrove continue its commitment, pride, endurance, and strive for excellence both on and off the field.
Go Wolverines!

Dane Mullins

In early cultivation, nectarines occasionally appeared on peach trees, the result of a recessive allele, the fruit from which were then cultivated as nectarines. Peaches are also part of the rose family. No wonder why we like all three, so …
