WHS Ground Breaking Event


Wayne School District employees participate in the Wayne High School Ground Breaking Event


You may have recently noticed a great deal of change happening at Wayne High School. The hard work of transforming the campus is underway!

Our recent Ground Breaking Ceremony was a successful event welcoming attendees from the local community, the County Commissioners office, the School District, the WCSD School Board, Hogan Construction, and their sub-contractors, as well as VCBO Architects.

Superintendent Shelley opened the ceremony by introducing the agenda and expressing how thrilled the district is to have this opportunity. School Board President April Torgerson thanked the many individuals and groups involved in the undertaking. Principal David Chappell spoke of the role our schools play in our small communities. According to Principal Chappell, our schools represent so much more to a community – a central gathering place, a community center, and a place of learning and preparation for kids. “High schools are a major component of our culture and identity. Anyone who grew up in Wayne County will always consider themselves Wayne Badgers...High school activities draw members from all our communities to come and walk the halls of our school. We are excited to have this new building that will be something our community can be proud of...the Staff of Wayne High and Middle School look forward to making it a great place for our students to learn and grow.”

Students, faculty and staff are very grateful and excited for the new high school and look forward to its projected completion in August 2024.

The Wayne County School District would like to take this opportunity to thank the many participants who have made this endeavor possible, including but not limited to; Senator Derrin Owens, Representative Brad Last, State Superintendent Sydnee Dickson, Deputy Superintendent of Operations Scott Jones, Sevier SD Superintendent Cade Douglas, USBE Finance Committee, State Board of Education, County Commissioners Roger Brian, Dennis Blackburn and Kerry Cook, WCSD Superintendent Randy Shelley, WCSD Business Administrator Tyler Newton, Hogan Construction and its many unnamed but much appreciated sub-contractors, VCBO Architects, and finally a special thank you to our Wayne County community members for their continued support of our students and schools.
