Champions of Wayne Blog
While some may think that the title of this blog post is shameless self promotion and an effort to increase awareness of my recently earned PhD (and it is), "What's Up Doc?" has another, perhaps more exciting meaning. For you see, doc can be short for "doctorate" as well as short for "documentary".
For those interested in a 130 page analysis of the impact of the Champions of Wayne program, my dissertation can be found HERE.
For those more interested in the Champions of Wayne documentary that is in the works at Wayne Memorial High School, please read on
Mr. Kevin English waits while the lights are set up.
Mr. Dave Kangas gives director Michael Stokes his thoughts on education in America.
Ms. Lynnette Cain and Ms. Kimberly Brannon discuss their involvement with Champions of Wayne.
Dr. Sean Galvin explains his research to producer Sally Helppie.
As you can see by the pictures of Mr. English, Mr. Kangas, Ms. Cain, Ms. Brannon, and myself, we had a film crew at WMHS last week, and we conducted interviews with several staff and students for the upcoming documentary.
The film, which is being directed and produced by Michael Stokes and WMHS alum Sally Helppie, will provide an inside look at Champions of Wayne--how/why it got started, the impact of the program, and where the program is headed.
Champions of John Glenn
Also new for this school year is the Champions of John Glenn program. CofJG has found a donor in Mr. Glenn Shaw, who is making a generous contribution for this school year. Champions of Wayne wishes nothing but the best for Champions of Glenn, and looks forward to some sort of competition with them in the future. Perhaps an academic decathlon a la Billy Madison?
Bring it on, Glenn!
