From Kilgore College:

KILGORE, TX - Kilgore College is pleased to announce that Shelley Wayne, assistant director and choreographer of the Rangerettes, has been awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Texas Dance Educators Association.

The award is given by TDEA annually to a dance educator with at least 15 years of service “who exhibits a true dedication toward the advancement of dance/drill team.”

Wayne, a native of Houston, attended North Shore High School where she served as captain of the high school drill team, the Scarlets, her senior year.

After high school, she attended KC and was a Rangerette from 1985-87 where she was a Lieutenant and a member of the Swingsters.

After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in 1991 from Southwest Texas State University (now called Texas State University), Wayne directed the drill team at Westfield High School for one year before accepting the job at KC as the assistant director and choreographer for the Rangerettes in 1993, a job she has held ever since.

Wayne taught for NCA Superstar from 1985-93 and Starmakers Dance and Performance Camps from 1994-2003. She received a Master of Education in 2000.

She currently teaches dance in the KC Fine Arts Department and is a co-owner of Encore Creative Productions, a dance/drill team company specializing in private instruction summer camps and leadership training.

Wayne received the NISOD Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2012 and is a lifetime member of Rangerettes Forever.

Each summer, she and Rangerette director Dana Blair co-direct the Rangerette summer camps for high school students.

She will be honored at the 2015 TDEA convention for her accomplishment.
