This will insure a lasting legacy that is so richly deserved by the now men and women who at one time in the past graced the athletic fields and arenas of Wilburton Public Schools.

There have been people who have distinguished themselves by making significant contributions to the athletic teams through the years as well. This would include coaches, managers, and other contributors. ItĀ  is our intention to recognize them as well.
