Sept. 11, 1984 —Gifted and talented students in the Warsaw Community High Schools now have a program designed especially for their needs, with a part-time coordinator and a $20,000-plus budget.
At the request of Judith Mugg, director of curriculum, the Warsaw Community School Board Monday night approved the 1984-85 gifted and talented program.
Sept. 16, 1980 — The defense continued its superb play and the offense more than carried its share of the load for the Warsaw Community High School junior varsity football team as the Tigers remained unbeaten with a 22-0 victory over Concord Monday.
It was Concord’s first loss after three wins, while Warsaw is now 4-0.
The Tigers’ defense recorded its third shutout of the season. A fierce pass rush keyed the effort as the Tigers sacked quarterback Blair Kennedy six times and intercepted him once. Mark McCrill had three sacks among his eight solo tackles and Kevin Burner numbered two sacks among his six solos before suffering a concussion in the third quarter.
Brooks Huffer had five solos and Gary Puckett had an interception for Coach Bob Turner’s Tigers.
Sept. 12, 1967 — Most Navy yeomen spend more time behind a typewriter than they do at the breech of a combat weapon, but Yeoman Second Class Jackie D. Stump, son of Eva McClintic of Milford, has been decorated twice for acts of heroism in combat.
He is also one of the few (if not only) yeomen to ever hold a command.
Sept. 16, 1965 — G. Freeland Phillips and Mrs. Inez Devenney today humbly, but proudly, wore the titles of “Man and Woman of the Year” in Warsaw following their selection Wednesday night at the annual Chamber of Commerce banquet.
