The man
Known for his big laugh and his big heart, Mr. Noble has taught more than 5,000 students in his social studies and media classes since he began at WCHS in 1974. Dave has been named by students as WCHS Teacher of the Year four times. He taught the first media class in 1975, using a ¾” tape player and a single camera. Today the WCHS Media Program, recognized as one of the top programs in the state, can claim an impressive body of work: Channel 4 programs, team highlight videos, feature productions, the Video Yearbook, corporate DVDs, community-wide programs, daily live announcements and individual profiles.

The legend
 “Dave Noble means WCHS. Nobody has given more to the school, or has meant more to its students, than Dave Noble. My time with this incredible educator helped me become the teacher I am today. He is both an inspiration and a legend.”
—Scot A. Gill ‘87, award-winning physics teacher at Tates Creek High School

“Dave has left an unshakable impact on his students. He gave them opportunities to voice their own opinions, to move beyond their comfort zone, and to enjoy attending WCHS. He has been an advocate for his students and will long be mentioned when graduates talk of teachers that made a difference in their lives.”
—Margie Maloney Cleveland ’76, school board member, parent, former student

“Dave’s whole career—his whole life—has been in this one building. His work day is limitless. His school year runs 12 months. Dave is here early in the mornings, and he works on weekends. His students do the work, and he ties it together.”
—Dan Cassity, long-time WCHS teacher, coach and administrator

The fund
While Dave is retiring after 35 years at WCHS, his legacy will continue through the Noble Fund. The fund provides scholarships to WCHS graduates who pursue a “noble” profession—dedicated to educating, healing or otherwise improving the lives of young people.

The Noble Fund offers former students, parents, colleagues and community members the chance to repay Dave for his dedication by helping others follow in Dave’s footsteps. Pick the amount that’s right for you—and Mr. Noble.
