Welcome, Guest
November 1, 2014

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.

Jack Kelly '67 on NPR / New Book


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.

1975 Yearbook Online


I have scanned the 1975 Yearbook and made a PDF. It is available at this link:

1975 Eagle

I was able to open and with little wait, but if you have a slow connection, it may take some time to load. I might make it available in another format in the near future.

Thanks to Jackie Monahan for the use of her yearbook.
