Welcome to the Wayne Central Alumni Web Site, which was started in November 1997. The purpose of this Web Site is to provide an on-line gathering point for alumni to read alumni news, get reunion information, contact each other, post a bio, photo, or link to a personal website. There are also quite a few photos that have been scanned from yearbooks posted in various pages here. Hopefully you'll find it enjoyable and useful for keeping in touch with your former classmates.
If anyone would like to submit any information to be included on this site, or would like to add class specific information, contact: Brian Donovan.
Alumni News and Info
Wayne took home another Wrestling Sectional trophy for 2015! Congratulations to the team! Wayne also had 3 individual champions. Congratulations to Matt Caccamise, Joey Sliwoski, and Luke Yankloski.
We are hoping everyone can join us again for the 7th annual Wayne Basketball Alumni Game, which is set for Saturday, January 3, 2015,@ 11:00 am at the High School. Games and teams will be set up similar to last year so there will be time to rest and socialize inbetween games.
A $10 Donation will go to the Connor Burns Ideal Teammate Scholarship, established three years ago to honor the memory of Connor, who passed away in 2009.
We are all so deeply saddened by the passing of Kyle Stewart, who we lost last month. The coaching staff will be starting a scholarship in his name to honor and remember him.
We hope you can all join us to honor and remember both of these fine young men. Money will be collected that day.
Please respond as soon as possible to let us know if you will be joining us. This is helpful so we can have a general idea of teams before game day! Also, PLEASE pass this info along to any other basketball alumni- we know there are many others out there who may want to play or just come and visit with old friends!
All Wayne Wrestling Alumni and Friends - Thursday December 18th 7:00 PM is Wayne Wrestling Alumni night. Please join us!
Apologies to all for lack of updates on this website in the last several months. Lack of time and motivation. After doing this for 17 years, I'm a little burned out. As another bill for the website will be coming soon, time to reevaluate options. Changes in the internet world have relegated parts of this site to be somewhat obsolete. These are some possibilities:
- Shut down the site when the current term is up
- Have someone else take it over
- Enable contributions to cover costs
- Re-vamp the site using WordPress as a content management system and include more contributors
- Move much of content to Facebook, drop the website. Allow others to manage it going forward.
#1 is easiest for me. New registrations have dropped to maybe 1 per month. There is a huge amount of content, here, but not much new added recently.
#2 would be some effort, but I'd rather see it kept going in some form.
#3 Though $100-$150 / year may not seem like much, over 10 years it is pretty significant. Every year, it gets harder to renew. 20-25 people /year donating $5.00 would be all it would take to remove any financial issues.
#4 is something I've been planning, but it is a major effort and haven't had time. It would make things easier to manage in the long run, and allow more contributors to the site. Depends on #3 and whether there is enough interest in keeping a website going.
#5 Facebook is free, allows more user interaction, but would allow news and photo sharing. Some people refuse to use Facebook however.
#6 Maybe something else I haven't thought of?
Feel free to comment or send me an email.
An interview on NPR with Jack Kelly '67 discussing his new book, "Band of Giants: The Amateur Soldiers Who Won America's Independence".
OK, it's Northeast Public Radio. Interesting just the same.
