A very important community event will occur on Sunday, May 29, 2016. The Wayne High School Class of 2016 will celebrate their graduation at The Wright State University Ervin J. Nutter Center beginning at 2 p.m. For our staff, parents, and students graduation is a very special milestone.
Our staff has worked very hard to prepare these students for life after graduation. Despite the diversity of learners in their classroom, the educational needs of each child has remained the main focus of each staff member. These soon-to-be-graduates were their students, and they have worked hard to give each of them the knowledge and skills they need to be college and career ready upon graduation. Our hope is that along with their education, the “Warrior Pride” instilled in students throughout their years in the Huber Heights City School District will stay with each of them as they leave Wayne and move on with their lives.
Parents of our graduates are wondering where the time has gone. It probably seems like yesterday that the cautiously sent their child off to kindergarten with a backpack, a snack, and a school box. Now, thirteen years later, they are watching as their children walk across the stage wearing a cap and gown to accept their diploma. Parents have been there for the day-to-day challenges and successes. Mom and dad packed lunches, filled our forms, helped with homework and science projects, and attended school activities. Now, parents and families are here to support these newly minted graduates as they begin the next chapter of their lives. Having the love and guidance of their families will help our new graduates persevere despite any obstacles they may face.
Students, graduation is your day to shine. You have worked hard and earned the honor of becoming a graduate from Wayne High School; a member of the Class of 2016. Remember, that as this chapter of your life is ending, another new, exciting chapter is just beginning. You have the skills and knowledge to choose your own future. For some, that may mean entering the workforce. For others, it means continuing your education at a two-year, four-year, or technical college. Graduation may be the end of high school but it is also the start of new educational plans that will lead to advanced degrees and careers.
Wayne High School’s graduation is always a memorable event that celebrates the unique and special talents of our senior class. We invite the members of our community to attend Wayne High School’s graduation ceremony and help us honor the accomplishments of the Class of 2016.
