• Nominations being accepted for outstanding alumni, educators


    The Waynesville R-VI School District Foundation launched its Hall of Leaders in 2018 to recognize alumni and educators for outstanding success in a field of expertise and for making a significant contribution to their communities.

    “Being inducted in the Hall of Leaders will be one of the most prestigious recognitions anyone could receive,” said Foundation President Jann Dye. “We will celebrate the recipients’ accomplishments long into the future as their portraits and a brief bio will be engraved into a plaque and displayed in Waynesville High School.”

    Through a partnership with the Waynesville R-VI School District, the Hall of Leaders is prominently located in the main entrance to WHS near the bronze tiger. 

    “Waynesville has long produced exceptional graduates and employed amazing educators and it will be an honor to permanently showcase our tradition of excellence through a Hall of Leaders,” said Dr. Brian Henry, superintendent. 

    The public is encouraged to nominate a graduate of Waynesville High School for the Lifetime Achievement Award for Alumni and/or a retired educator from the Waynesville R-VI School District for the Outstanding Educational Professional. The deadline is February 1, 2020. 

    Each application packet must include:

    • Nomination Form (click here to download a nomination form)

      A short essaying explaining why your nominee deserves recognition.

      Two to four letters of support sharing how the nominee demonstrates leadership, character and dedication to the district.

    The Foundation plans to induct one individual in each category. The awards will be presented at the foundation’s first Showcase Waynesville Schools Banquet in May.
