Rally for Coach Foster: Hoops & Hope on the Court!

Join us this Friday, February 16th, for a night of fierce competition and heartwarming support at the final Whiteoak Wildcats Boys’ Varsity, JV, and Freshman basketball games in the Whiteoak Gymnasium! We are honoring our Seniors and a very special youth coach.

This event holds extra special meaning as we rally around our beloved youth basketball coach Dustin Foster, who is currently recovering from an emergency heart operation. Coach Foster has given his all to our youth basketball program, not only coaching with passion but also cheering on all of our Whiteoak teams with relentless enthusiasm.
To show our love and support, there will be XL raffle items, baked goods, gift card raffles, spirit sales, and places to give a monetary donation, with ALL proceeds going directly to the Foster family. Every dollar raised will help ease their financial burden during this challenging time.

Come out for an evening filled with exciting basketball, cheer on our Wildcats, and help us shower Coach Foster and his family with love and support. It's time to show our region the true meaning of our Wildcat spirit! The first games will start at 4:30 (Freshman) and activities will continue throughout the evening.

First State Bank Partnership with Bright Local

I am writing to express our sincere gratitude to First State Bank for their incredibly generous donation in support of the digital sign project at Whiteoak Junior High/High School. The commitment of $23,000 over the next five years is a significant contribution that will undoubtedly have a lasting impact on our school community. First State Bank is locally owned and operated. First State Bank has 16 locations throughout Southern Ohio and Kentucky.

This donation not only demonstrates First State Bank's commitment to education but also exemplifies their dedication to the betterment of our local schools. The digital sign project at Whiteoak JH/HS is a vital initiative, and First State Bank's support plays a crucial role in making it a reality. 'Working alongside the amazing First State Bank team has been amazing. The amount of support they have given our staff and students is truly remarkable".

On behalf of Bright Local we would like to extend our deepest appreciation to First State Bank for recognizing the importance of investing in education and for being a cornerstone in the success of this project. Your generosity will contribute to enhancing communication within our school community and creating a more dynamic and engaging environment for students, parents, and staff alike.
