Athletic Director, Don Wilkins:
PHILOSOPHY OF ATHLETICS AT WALLA WALLA HIGH SCHOOL
The athletic department believes that each student who commits himself/herself to the Walla Walla High School athletic program will learn valuable lessons about how to be successful in meeting the challenges of the competitive society of his/her future.
To lead a successful life, a person needs to be both mentally and physically alert. That person must learn the responsibilities inherent in the commitments of life. The person must approach life positively with a sincere desire to realize his/her own dignity and selfworth, as well as that of his/her fellow man. A person must learn to cope with the boredom of inactivity through various mental and physical outlets. He/She must learn to bounce back in the face of defeat. He/she must learn and practice the concepts of cooperation and team work. The athletic department strives to assist our student/athletes to reach these goals.
