Waynesboro is a very small town, growing up here is not a regret. This town instills values in its youth, and lets them see life from a perspective you cannot find in the city. But to live here beyond your youth would be unfortunate if one had lived in Waynesboro their whole life. Waynesboro does not have much to offer to individuals who want to grow in their careers and see the world. It also lacks heavily in varation of cultures, then again no place is perfect to stay in forever.

One thing that is great about Waynesboro is that it is safe. Most of the community knows one another, so if someone is in danger or needs help it is easy to find. Also if there ever were an extreme issue the police are quick to respond, and care about the well being of the community.
Many people commute, especially government workers who work at local military sites. In town there are many opportunities for high school students to work.
