Wayne grew up farming beside his parents, brother, and grandparents in Spartanburg County, SC. He received a full football scholarship to Wofford College. After graduating Wofford, he taught Math and coached Basketball and Football at Daniel High School. He then began his journey into the world of textiles which culminated in 33 years with Monsanto Chemical Company in Charlotte. His love of teaching never wavered as he trained young sales and tech sales hires, and led youth in fellowship and Sunday School at South Mecklenburg Presbyterian Church.
