WBI Helps Local 4th Grade Class Travel to the Outer Banks!
Wayne Brothers, Inc. donated to the Allenbrook Elementary School’s 4th grade class to assist with their field trip expenses. From February 13-15 the class traveled to the Trinity Sound Sea Environmental Educational Program located on the Bogue Sound in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The program offered a residential school program in an outdoor, coastal environment. The children participated in a variety of outdoor classes dealing with topics including ocean and salt marsh life, forest and pond ecology, bird and mammal study, and sensory awareness. In addition, Sound and Sea offers a social learning experience in which the children learned to live and work in a close community atmosphere. All major subject areas were covered including science, social studies, math, and language arts.
On behalf of myself, my son, and Allenbrook Elementary School, thank you for your contribution towards their field trip. It was a great and valuable experience for everyone.

WBI & Vulcan Help the Corvian Community School!
Wayne Brothers teamed up with Vulcan Materials to donate and install a huge boulder for the Corvian Community School in Charlotte, NC. Vulcan donated the boulder, and Wayne Brothers hauled the boulder from the quarry and placed it at the school while the students watched with excitement. The boulder will be used as a great spirit rock for the students to paint and decorate for special events. Great job, WBI & Vulcan!
WBI, Chandler Concrete & the United Way Help Enochville Elementary School
Bob Cartner with Chandler Concrete approached Wayne Brothers about teaming up for the United Way’s Rowan County 2012 Day of Caring. When he told us the project was in our local community, to build brand new concrete sidewalks for the Enochville Elementary school in Kannapolis, North Carolina, we knew we had to participate!
The project consisted of prep, place and finish of new sidewalk, plus three areas of existing sidewalk needed to be removed and replaced. The concrete in these areas had buckled due to tree roots growing under the sidewalk, and it was creating a tripping hazard for the children and teachers.
John Ashworth, WBI’s VP of Field Operations, organized this project for Wayne Brothers. He was appreciative of the great response he received when he asked several of WBI’s Superintendents, including several that live in the local community, if they were willing to participate. Several of our employees, including Jason Loucks and Daniel Mancera, have children that attend Enochville Elementary School.
This project came together with the help of John Ashworth, Josh Akers, Jason Loucks, Daniel Mancera, Jesse Green, Scott Ashworth, Kevin Steele, Rick McCracken, Bob Cartner, WBI’s Equipment Group, Chandler Concrete, and the United Way.
WBI’s Equipment Group delivered the skid steer and mini excavator for the project. Chandler Concrete donated the concrete for the project. Josh, Jason, Daniel and Jesse performed the prep work which included stripping the topsoil from the new side walk area, forming the sidewalk, and removing the existing damaged sidewalks. Then they all worked together to place and finish the sidewalks.
It took a group effort to complete the project, and now Enochville Elementary’s sidewalks look great! The children and teachers are very excited and appreciative to have new, safe sidewalks at their school, and Wayne Brothers was happy to donate their time and energy to help their local schools.
