WRHS Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Moved to Friday The Washburn Rural High School Hall of Fame Ceremony set for Thursday, January 11 has been moved to Friday, January 12 due to the weather. The induction will take place in the WRHS cafeteria beginning at 4:00 PM. Also on January 12, there will be a brief recognition between the girls' and boys' varsity basketball games at approximately 7:00 PM. The public is welcome and invited to attend the events. Washburn Rural High School is recognizing two individuals who were chosen for the school's Hall of Fame. They will also be recognizing the 2005 Boys Tennis team. Dr. Stephan (Steve) Groth (class of 1985) will be the Alumni inductee. He entered Auburn-Washburn district as a sixth grader eventually graduating in 1985 as co-valedictorian. He competed in three sports at WRHS earning team state championships in basketball (1985) and track (1984) as well as state runner up in cross-country (1982) and track (1985). He earned WRHS track records in the distance medley and 4x800 meter. Steve was named to the Topeka Jaycees All-City Scholastic Team in 1985. He credits Washburn Rural faculty and fellow students with inspiring his love of learning, exploration, and service. He remains close friends with many of his WRHS classmates. Steve subsequently attended Kansas State University graduating summa cum laude in 1989. He pursed his passion in health care enrolling at the University of Kansas Medical School and later receiving Alpha Phi Alpha honors before graduating in 1993. Dr. Groth accepted residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Texas Health Science Center serving as chief resident his final year. Dr. Groth has been practicing general obstetrics and gynecology in a small community for the last 20 years. He estimates that he has delivered over 3,500 babies in his career to date. He also provides gynecologic care including robotic surgery to his patients on the southern Oregon coast. "I am blessed to be able to assist women and families in some amazing, as well as very trying times in their lives," says Groth. Steve and his wife, Jennifer, have volunteered often in the Coos Bay community including serving as Boys and Girls Club track coaches for 10 years, assisting with the Prefontaine for Kids Run, and other projects. Dr. Groth also volunteers with the Coos County Public Health Department providing contraceptive and other women's health services to uninsured and underinsured women. He earned a "Super Star" award from the Friends of the Coos County Public Health. Steve and Jennifer have a daughter, Isabel, who is attending the University of California at Berkeley. Parents are Bill and Marcia Groth (a retired WRHS teacher). Brother, Scott, and sister, Jeanne are both WRHS graduates. Scott Shufelberger will be the Staff inductee. Mr. Scott Shufelberger graduated from Highland Park High School in 1977. In 1982, he was a proud Wildcat, earning his Bachelor's Degree. He finished his education in 1991 with his Master’s Degree from Emporia State University. In addition to the strong relationships Scott has built within the classroom, he has impacted many young athletes throughout his career on the field, court, and track. While teaching Social Studies at Topeka West from 1982-1986, Shufelberger coached basketball and football. In 1986, Scott found his home at Washburn Rural. He became a pillar of the Rural community as he earned the respect of students and colleagues. A colleague remarked, “Shuf is one of those guys that would do anything for you. He’s as selfless as they come.” Scott gave his time and guidance to develop teen Christians by sponsoring Christians In Action for ten years. Scott and his wife, Lynette, who also taught in the district, sponsored prom and other dances for nearly twenty years. He earned recognition as a highly respected coach by leading the Cross Country Team to many victories from 1986-2016. Under his lead, the ‘96 Girl’s Cross Country Team was the only team to have a perfect score at a city meet. This team went on to win the State Championship and Shufelberger was named Cross Country Coach of the Year. He coached State Champs Jacob Morgan and Avery Clifton. Many of his athletes were named All State and one runner was named Big ‘12 Newcomer of the Year when they went on to join the KU team. Before retiring as coach, the Men’s Cross Country Team had won nine straight City Titles and has continued the streak to eleven currently under the direction of the new coach, who was one of Scott’s former runners. He served as assistant track coach for 29 years and assistant basketball coach for 15. Upon retirement in 2016, Shufelberger’s commitment to educating youth did not end. He serves as a substitute teacher at Maize High School and Campus High School in Wichita, where his daughters teach. This Spring, Scott will step in as a long term sub for the Professional Cooking Class taught by his daughter Cara while she goes on maternity leave. Scott and Lynette bought a condo on the lake with a boat only steps from their back door. They enjoy being close to their daughters, Lauren and Cara, their two granddaughters, Emma (5) and Stella (2), and their 4 year old grandson, Owen.
