Bradley Wuthrich Named Mental Attitude Award Winner

Academically, Wuthrich ranks second in his senior class of 188 students, has served as class treasurer all four years and is a member of the National Honor Society and Student Council. He also serves as a manager for the girls tennis team in the spring.
Bradley is the son of Steve and Ann Wuthrich of Muncie and plans to study pharmacy at Purdue University next fall.
Each year the IHSSA Executive Committee selects a senior player who was nominated by his principal and coach and was determined to have best demonstrated mental attitude, scholarship, leadership, and athletic ability. The Committee presented $1,000 to Delta High School's general scholarship fund in the name of Wuthrich.
