Wayne Warner is the longest serving high principal in the United States, now in his 50th year as principal of Chalmette High School. With strength and patience, respect and love, Warner has guided his students through the aftermath of the Vietnam war, desegregation, the resignation of a president, the terrorist strike on 911, “Shock and Awe”, the phenomenon of mobile phones in the hands of every student and the rise of social media.
Warner’s impact is, without question, immeasurable and far-reaching. WLAE-TV is proud to tell his story. Please partner with us as we interview current and former faculty members, parents, students, administrators, friends and, of course, Wayne Warner himself.
