Welcome Letter from Rebel Families President

Dear Rebel Families,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Willoughby South community. Our

mission is to support and financially aid the activities of ALL students at Willoughby

South High School. Under the direction of Dr. Ward and in conjunction with the Athletic

and Band Boosters and other parent volunteer groups, we are proud to champion your

child to his or her best.


south rebel families thanks youIf you haven’t already heard or seen Dr. Ward’s motto, you will soon!

We are an Academic Institution!

These five simple words pack a powerful message.

We: used by a speaker to refer to himself or herself and one or more other

people considered together.

Academic: interested in or excelling at scholarly pursuits and activities

Institution: a well-established and familiar person, custom, or object

The scholarly definitions of these words are primary, taking place on a daily basis

with your child’s talented teachers, under respected administrators and committed

support staff. But we are also parents just like you, interested in your child excelling in

his or her social activities and interests.


I am dedicated to the Willoughby South community, not just for my daughter or

her clubs and groups, but rather for every Rebel. Whether or not a child ever steps onto

one of our fields or stages, his or her parents ever can’t or choose not to volunteer; he

or she ever takes interest in a social activity or event, I want that child to feel a part of

the community we create!


Please know that I am at your service,

Lisa Stevens
