Whitnall to honor Stave

in jersey ceremony

Joel Stave, Whitnall High School graduate and University of Wisconsin quarterback, will be honored in a jersey ceremony at 2 p.m. Thursday, March 10, at the high school.

Stave, along with his family, will be recognized by the school district when he presents Whitnall High School with a signed and framed No. 2 Badgers jersey in front of the school body and staff in the Whitnall gymnasium, 5000 S. 116th St., Greenfield.

The ceremony will include video highlights of Stave's career, special guests and a performance by the Whitnall band. The event is open to the public, although all guests must sign in at the school's front office.

Stave passed for 5,017 yards and 40 touchdowns in his two-year Whitnall varsity career and then notched the most victories (31) for any Wisconsin quarterback.
