Wayne Christian School Named National Beta School of Distinction

Goldsboro, NC – Wayne Christian School is proud to announce that we are a 2021-2022 National Beta School of Distinction. The school earned this recognition by increasing our club’s membership by at least 10% from last year.

National Beta School of Distinction is an honor for Beta clubs striving towards academic achievement, exemplary character, demonstrated leadership, and service to others. With an ongoing quest to instill these qualities in more students, the National Beta School of Distinction Award is designed to award those schools that show an increase in membership from the previous school year. This year, only 2,250 Beta Clubs across the country received this award.

In a congratulatory letter to the school, Bobby Hart, CEO said “This national award speaks highly of your commitment to academic excellence and illustrates your dedication to preparing students for their future.”

Award recipients will receive a National Beta School of Distinction banner to proudly display as a symbol of their accomplishment.

Luis Miranda, WCS principal, says “Congratulations to Mrs. Newberry and Mrs. Britt on leading the WCS chapter of the National Junior Beta Club to earn this distinction for our school. We are proud of the students who have worked so hard to reach this accolade.”About National Beta

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!

WCS is truly the best, most supportive school family! Just over two weeks ago, we set a goal of raising $75,000 to do some campus upgrades this summer. You blew right past that goal to raise $118,537 in just 16 days! This means that we will be able to accomplish even more than we had planned around our campus. It has truly been amazing these last two weeks to watch you work together to reach class goals, and we appreciate the generous donors who made it happen. A special shout-out belongs to a number of donors who asked to sponsor children other than their own to make sure that every child received at least one prize.

Be on the lookout this summer for updates about what’s happening around campus and what we are upgrading in order to better serve our students and families

Boosterthon Update

You have done an amazing job supporting our annual Boosterthon fundraiser. Not only did you meet our goal–you’ve blown right past it!

We don’t have a final total to announce yet because high school pledges are open until Thursday. In fact, we’re opening a new challenge for high school students for the next few days. If any high school grade makes it to $4000 raised as a grade level, all students in that grade can participate in the inflatables on Thursday. Students from grade levels who don’t make it to $4000 but who meet the individual goal of $50 will still participate also.

Be on the lookout Friday for an announcement of the total raised! Thank you for all your support!
