After 18 years as a math teacher in the Clay Local School District, Mr. Wayne Warnock has decided to retire.
He said, "I have mixed emotions and will miss everyone, but it is time for something different. I'm not sure what that is yet, but it's time." He worked at the local Workman's Compensation Office for 15 years prior to coming to Clay. Mr. Warnock is a 1976 graduate of East High School and is a huge Columbus Blue Jackets fan.
One boy and girl are chosen by their teachers each year as the most outstanding students. In the eighth grade Lila Brown and Jensen Warnock tied for the honor and Ian Grimm took the boys’ honor. In the seventh grade Jaelyn Warnock and Ethan Sanford took the top all-around student awards. The sixth-grade award winners were Emily Clausing and Jaden Jessee.
