Panthers News · Erica Stutsman & Brayton Yoder earn 17-18 Athlete of the Year Honors!


NorthWood High School celebrated the class of 2018 on June 7 at Nappanee Missionary Church! The athletic department had many celebrations to share with our parents about this class.  The tradition of naming our NLC All-Academic Team was extraordinarily special last night.  For the first time our Top 10 All-NLC Academic Team Members were also all named NorthWood Valedictorians!  This is something that we as an athletic department could not be more proud of.  For these ten individuals to earn these honors as full-time athletes is quite an accomplishment.
