Westerville North Blogs - Principal Yancey



Attention all Warrior Staff, Partners, Families, and Alumni:

I'd like to invite you to participate in the upcoming Westerville North Football Golf Outing.


I'm pleased to share an exciting upcoming event for all North Warriors both past and present.

The Westerville North High School 40th Anniversary Event Team has announced plans to hold a celebration for charity in honor of the school’s 40th anniversary. The event, which will take place on Friday, April 22, 2016 from 6:30-10 p.m., will include dinner, a silent auction and speakers from different eras of North history.

Tickets to the event cost $20 and are all-inclusive. Dinner will be provided by various restaurants of the Westerville community.

Westerville North High School (WNHS) Principal Kurt Yancey announced today that Scott Wetzel has been selected as Head Coach of the Westerville North High School Football Program pending Board Action.

The Ohio Graduation Tests were given the week of October 26 to those students in the Graduating Classes of 2015 and 2016 who had not yet passed them.  We are also going to be recieving scores soon on the tests that last year's Freshman took in the Spring of 2015.  To better understand the dates and tests for this year please see the Testing Calendar here and a letter from the district which should answer many of your questions.


I'm proud to share Westerville North's very own Rex Lundstrom and his journeys in Japan. Rex graduated from North in May 2015 and is now spending a gap year studying abroad in Japan. Check out his bio and first blog entry below. To continue receiving his updates, visit

 Congratulations Rex, we wish you the best!

Tragic Events

Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people ages 15 to 24. Teenagers experience strong feelings of stress, confusion, self-doubt, pressure to succeed, financial uncertainty, and other fears while growing up. For some teenagers, divorce, the formation of a new family with step-parents and step-siblings, or moving to a new community can be very unsettling and can intensify self-doubts. For some teens, suicide may appear to be a solution to their problems and stress.
