The Wabash Plan Commission, for the second time in two months, approved a resolution recommending that the Wabash City Council update the city’s ordinance on political signs on Wednesday, April 4.


The commission approved the same resolution in March. However, it failed to have a public hearing on the matter, thus it had to reconsider the matter. It unanimously approved sending the matter to the City Council following the hearing, at which no one spoke for or against the matter.

Floyd McWhirt served as the assistant athletic director for the past two years at Wabash High School under Matt Stone, learning the ins and outs of the role of leading an athletic program.


McWhirt knew he wanted to be the head AD, but as the first couple of opportunities presented themselves, the timing wasn’t right for he and his family.


Stone had taken over as the school’s chief financial officer in recent years, and opted to add transportation duties to his responsibilities, leaving the AD’s position open.


This time, the timing was right for McWhirt, who will step in as the new head AD in the fall.
