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.
