WHHS Cougar Corner/WHHS Cougar Pride Foundation

The WHHS Cougar Pride Foundation was founded in 2017 by a group of Alumni that saw a need to help the current students at Western Hills. Patty Pressley, Class of 1982, is the executive director of the foundation and the biggest of its contributors. Ms. Patty has taken on many roles over the last few years, but by far the biggest is that of "school mom" to many current and recent grads of Western Hills. The Foundation helps with feeding students organizations and athletes before events, food bags for extended breaks in the school year like Winter and Spring break, and helping the community as an added food bank. Cougar Corner has become a staple on the Western Hills High School campus. Students know that if they need anything at all, like food, clothing, shoes, toiletries, etc, that Ms. Patty and Cougar Corner probably has it. The benefits of Cougar Corner and the Cougar Pride Foundation have been life changing and culture changing for the Western Hills kids. Athletically, our kids are no longer going home hungry. The availability of food for all students has led to a noticeable physical difference in our athletes. We see growth in the ones that might have struggled to have food on the table when they get home at night. We cannot thank Ms. Patty and the Foundation enough for all of their generous help and love for our Cougars!

Class of 2019

Former Cougar, Nate Caballero is the starting center for East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma. Nate (#66) and his team recently beat Tarleton State University 21-14. Nate is majoring in Sports Medicine. Coach Bill Rock was able to go and watch Nate play and took these pictures.
