Whitko Alumni Association

The WHITKO ALUMNI ASSOCIATION has a home at Whitko Career Academy. Memorabilia from days gone by are a part of a rotating display and an Alumni Room is currently in progress. It’s a goal of the Whitko Alumni Association to preserve and celebrate Whitko history by sharing their collection of memorabilia from Whitko Jr/Sr High School and Whitko High School as well as the Larwill, Pierceton, Sidney, and South Whitley community schools.

If you have Whitko memorabilia from your days as a Wildcat and you’d like to donate it or loan it to be a part of our active display, please schedule a time to drop your items off at Whitko Career Academy. Items on loan will be cared for and returned to you in the same condition received. It’s our goal to preserve and celebrate our Alumni, and your memories will make a wonderful addition to the Whitko Alumni Association collection. 

The Whitko Alumni Association can be contacted by email at whitko.alumni@whitko.org.
