Beginning Saturday, the district’s five traditional academic calendar high schools will graduate approximately 1,100 seniors. The district’s three non-traditional academic calendar high schools, Goldsboro High, Wayne Early/Middle College High School, and Wayne School of Engineering, held commencement ceremonies in May. The three schools had approximately 230 graduates.

Administrators say the graduation season is an exciting time of the year for the district.

“We congratulate these seniors for their hard work in achieving the academic milestone of becoming a Wayne County Public Schools graduate,” states Dr. Michael Dunsmore, WCPS superintendent. “We wish them all the very best as they move on to higher education, the military or the workforce.”

It is worth noting that 42 of the 64 Wayne Early/Middle College High School graduates earned a high school diploma and an associate degree from Wayne Community College. Of those, two earned both an Associate in Arts degree and an Associate in Science degree. Five of the 45 Wayne School of Engineering graduates earned associate degrees as well.

Earlier this week, Edgewood Community Developmental School held its Graduation Program for students who met their program requirements. This year, the school had a total of three students graduating. Each of these students were presented a certificate of completion. On a special note, during the ceremony, eight graduating pre-K and elementary students were recognized with a certificate of achievement for meeting their program requirements to be able to transition to a traditional school in the fall.

“The district is very proud of all of our Edgewood Community Developmental School student graduates for their accomplishments,” adds Dr. Dunsmore.
