Since 1971, during the academic year the Waynesburg Lions Club, with the help of the WCHS faculty, recognizes 2 senior students each month based on the following criteria: academic standing, community service, school activities, character and sense of responsibility, performance (past & present). These students and their parents are invited to a club dinner meeting and given a certificate and pen/pencil set. From these 18 students, two are selected to be Students of the Year and at graduation are each awarded $1000 scholarship.
