Three Wabash High School alumni and one generous Wabash citizen were inducted into the WHS Hall of Distinction Saturday, Sept. 3.

Philanthropist George F. Bosch and alumni James D. Conner Jr., David K. Henderson and Richard Wolpert were honored for their accomplishments, service to others and enrichment of Wabash City Schools' history, according to Jason Callahan, WCS superintendent.

"Today we find Wabash City Schools on the rise," Callahan told the audience Saturday afternoon. "In the last few years, we've been recognized by U.S. News and World Report as one of the top high schools in the state of Indiana. ... However, we did not arrive at these accolades without looking to the blueprints of the past. It is in these histories that we uncover the beacons of innovation."
