This picture is not of the front door. Once a better one can be found, it should be replaced. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.66.192.109 (talk) 21:26, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

In around September I'll have a chance to take some pics of the front door, and maybe a gallery of the interior. Ginbot86 (talk) 05:48, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

2009-June-21: Below are content I removed from article. Some obvious vandalism going on with names changed back and forth (check history).


The school prides itself as "the home of scholars, artists, and champions." The school motto is "Finis Coronat Neilus," Latin for "The End Crowns Neil Hauer."

Henry Wise Wood Senior High School is also noted as possessing one of the top football programs in western Canada. Under the staunch leadership of quarterback/wide receiver/defensive back/tight end/offensive coordinator/mascot Neil Hauer, the team attained a 4-2 record in the 2007 regular season. Despite suffering multiple compound fractures in each leg during the regular season finale, Hauer defied all odds by not only playing the entire length of the postseason, but by scoring all 79 points to rout the St. Francis Browns 79-3 in the championship game, played at the Calgary Stampeders' McMahon Stadium. A monumental statue depicting the victorious Hauer crushing the skulls of several defeated Browns players was commissioned immediately following the game and was erected in front of the stadium to remind the other Wise Wood players that maybe, one day, they would be able to at least score a point or two.

In 2008, expectations for the team had greatly diminished, as Hauer's training and practice rituals had become a secondary priority following his election to President. Unbeknownst to the media and fans, however, was the brilliant and unorthodox plan Hauer's keen mind had conjured over the offseason: the introduction of an obscure ringer, a man a local paper described as "apparently pretty good at figure skating or something like that." Combining this newfound ally with his innovative use of the Segway as a method of in-game transportation, he managed to complete the regular and postseason undefeated, all the while retaining enough spare time to invent the zipper. Hauer is currently retired and serves as dictatorial administrator of a local community. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.152.164.96 (talk) 02:26, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
