Wildcat Family, if you’ve visited campus recently you may have noticed two new structures donated by Woodrow alums. First is a “shade” structure on the east side of the building between the original 2008 addition.

The structure was made possible by donors to Wildcat Legends Plaza, a project conceived and executed by the Woodrow Class of 1966.

Our alums' second project was a collaboration with Woodrow Athletic Booster to provide a canopy providing much-needed shade for Woodrow athletes. These '66 Wildcats, in conjunction with the class of 2015, also provided the monument sign in Woodrow's front yard as well as Legends Plaza.

Thank you Legends Plaza Committee and Donors and Class of 1966 for your vision and commitment to your school and fellow Wildcats!
