2019 Wiss Nation Hero

Congrats to the 2019 Wiss Nation Hero, WHS alumna Robyn Betterly '81, who was recognized at the December 9th school board meeting for her support of Wissahickon students. A volunteer with the Wissahickon Valley Boys and Girls Club in Ambler, Ms. Robyn teaches a weekly cooking class - Food Four (4) Thought- where students learn about good nutrition by cooking delicious meals with healthy ingredients. Ms. Robyn also provides a pre-packaged bag of fruit and vegetables with a recipe the students can take home to cook with their families.
