Onalaska High Schoo
On a plot of land presently surrounded by Main Street, King Street, Fourth Street, and Fifth Street, Onalaska’s first public high school was founded in January 1890. The school’s inaugural graduating class consisted of three students, and its mascot was a red and white Viking. The school used red and white as its colors. A replacement edifice was erected on the same site in 1896 after the old structure was destroyed by fire in 1895.

All of the students in the Onalaska public school system were transferred to the area that had previously been occupied by the La Crosse County School of Agriculture in 1924 after yet another fire completely destroyed the new building. The school started using the purple and white colors in the 1940s, and soon after that, it earned the moniker “Hilltopper.”
This was caused by the school’s setting, which was jokingly referred to as “Heaven on a Hill.” In 1970, a further brand-new building had to be built due to the growing student population.

Carmen was a part of every family celebration and gathering and she rejoiced at the birth of every niece and nephew. She thrived and came to life in her role as Auntie Carmen. Her dry wit, sense of humor, and generous heart will always be cherished. Carmen had a gift for bringing out the best in everyone she met, and we are richer for it. We are all a bit more compassionate, patient, understanding, tolerant, and loving because we know Carmen.
