From the outside looking in Wayne Memorial High Schools seems like any other high school you can find from around the nation. It has all of the general features of a run of the mill secondary institution, but one thing that sets Wayne Memorial High School apart from the average high school is their Champions of Wayne program.

The Champions of Wayne program is a non-profit organization centered in the Wayne-Westland community that provides all participating students a chance to earn $200, just by completing a goal that they set at the start of each semester. Bill Gray and Richard Helppie founded the Program in 2009 as a way to show students that they are “capable of doing better than they already are.” said founder Richard Helppie during the Champions of Wayne banquet. While on the surface the $200 incentive and the surplus of student goals met seem to be the result of Champions, the lasting effect of the program is much more valuable than $200.
