Goal:  $225,000

Actual Income to Date:  $61,030

Amount Needed to Complete Project:  $163,970

Wayne Community Schools Foundation is committed to making the Kern Track and Field Complex the best of the best.

 Hosting events such as the Wayne Elementary Fun Run, High School Conference Track meets, Junior High and Junior Varsity Football games, as well as Relay for Life, the Kern Track and Field Complex engages numerous individuals within northeast Nebraska and beyond.  Through your support, the Kern Track and Field Complex will continue to be a state-of-the-art facility used by our entire school district, our community, and our region. Installing lights at the facility would allow the school district to schedule football games later so parents can be there at the start.  Currently, the games begin at 4:00 p.m. to ensure they are finished before dark, forcing parents and spectators to leave work early if they want to be at the game in time for kick-off.  Also, many times the Wayne High Track meets are not finished before the sun goes down; therefore, our last events are completed in the dark.  Serving as host of Relay for Life, the school district has to rent stadium lights for the participants.  Lights would also give many of our community walkers the option of walking not only during the day, but also in the evenings.
