Alumni Association Honors . df ' il Wg f
West High School has had many students and teachers of
whom it's extremely proud. These teachers and students in
turn, have shown their continued interest in the educational
program at West by actively participating in alumni functions.
Still others have been honored by having awards and honors,
established in their name, which honor graduates from suc-
ceeding classes. Many athletes are honored in this way.
Each year the athlete who has been most outstanding in
school affairs receives the Harry Huffman Athletic Trophy,
in honor of Dr. H. G. Garwood. For the athlete-scholar who
has attained the highest scholastic standing among his fellow
athletes, there is the Howard Wagner Memorial Award.
