WMHS seeks Distinguished Alumni
Wayne Memorial High School is looking for a Distinguished Alumni to be honored at the 2015 graduation ceremony on May 31.
“We have had many outstanding people graduate from Wayne Memorial,” said Kevin Weber, principal, Wayne Memorial. “Many have contributed significantly to the betterment of society on a local, state, national or international level. The Distinguished Alumni Award is our way of honoring an outstanding graduate on an annual basis.”
Each winner is awarded a medal inscribed with the official school seal. They are honored with a Distinguished alumni reception and speak to the graduating class at commencements. “This is an opportunity for our current graduating class, to hear first hand from a former alumnus who has made his/her mark on society,” Weber said.
The most difficult task is to locate the many alumni who have distinguished themselves since their graduation. For that reason, Wayne Memorial is asking the community to help in its search. If any member of the Community wishes to nominate a Wayne Memorial graduate, they are asked to submit a nomination letter to Mrs. Rawson, Secretary to the Principal, at Wayne Memorial High School, 3001 Fourth Street, Wayne, Michigan 48184 or call 734-419-2206.
A “Distinguished Alumni” committee has been established at Wayne Memorial to decide on the recipient for 2015. An announcement of the winner will be made in mid May. Nominations are due by February 24, 2015.
