Throughout the year the Massillon Tiger Football Booster Club raises money through various means to help fund the club and provide benefits to worthy students. One of those activities involves the purchase of vehicle license plates that display the Obie mascot on the left side and the words “Massillon Tigers” at the bottom. Approved by the governor in 2013, WHS was the first high school in Ohio to have its own commemorative plate. The extra cost is $35 per year, with $25 going to the club to fund an annual scholarship. Plates can be purchased through any DMV in Ohio.
Eligible students must be associated with the football program and demonstrate excellence in both academics and citizenship. This year’s award winners are Dillon Delong, Kordell Ford, Nathan Gregg, Seth Blankenship and Samantha Smith.
