Message from the Campaign Chairs

Waynesboro has a rich history of pride within our community. The primary focus of the WABEC Foundation is to serve the students of Waynesboro Area School District and instill a sense of honor and accomplishments by providing innovative educational opportunities. Within the past two years, the WABEC Foundation has embarked on a broader vision to focus on specific areas: Academics, Arts, and Athletics. The initial part of
our Capital Campaign was very successful. We secured $75,000 to create a Music Technology Lab at the Waynesboro Area Senior High School. WABEC also raised $80,000 to provide each of the four elementary schools a mobile computer lab (120 laptop computers).

Our focus is now on the athletic needs of our students and community. Our goal is to raise $1,575,000 to provide a new synthetic turf field and track for Waynesboro Area School District students and community residents. Students in band, athletics, and physical education classes will all benefit from this project. In addition, elementary and middle school students may use the facility for district activities, sports programs and community events. WABEC’s partnership with the Waynesboro Area School District is evident in their $328,000 commitment to the track project. Together we can make this field and track a focal point of pride in our community!

Our task is challenging but it can be accomplished. We know that many worthwhile causes seek your dedicated endorsement and charitable contributions. Still, we know a synthetic, multipurpose turf field and a new track for the Waynesboro Area Senior High School is an investment in our children and our community. As chairs of this $1,575,000 Capital Campaign, we ask you to share our enthusiasm through your generous financial support.
