Champions creates an opportunity for WMHS students to earn a $200 incentive by reaching a customized academic goal. Champions of Wayne is privately funded by WMHS graduates and the Wayne Community. Each semester, students grades 9-12 are paired with a mentor. Often, the mentor is a favorite teacher, administrator, counselor, or other WMHS employee. Next, students are provided with a customized academic goal that they work toward for the duration of the semester. Once final grades are posted, successful students are invited to celebrate their achievement, share a meal, and receive their rewards at the Champions banquet.
