At the heart of Wilton Class Marketing lies our network of amazing Wilton Method Instructors, and we do our best to make sure they know how much we appreciate their efforts. As a part of this appreciation, we developed the WMI Recognition Program to honor instructors for their teaching milestones.
Once an instructor reaches the â€ś1,000 students taughtâ€ť mark, we induct them into our Hall of Fame, the crowning achievement for WMIs everywhere! Once inducted into the Hall of Fame, the names of the instructors are engraved on plaques hanging on the Wilton Wall of Fame in our corporate headquarters, where they will forever be part of this elite group.
During the nearly 40 year history of Wilton Method classes, weâ€™ve added 1,230 WMIs to the Wall of Fame at the following levels:
996 Instructors â€“ Hall of Fame for 1,000 students taught
191 Instructors â€“ Presidentâ€™s Club for 2,500 students taught
43 Instructors â€“ Imperial Club for 5,000 students taught
Prior to 2009, these inductees were limited to the US and Canada, but no more – in the last 2 years, the Wilton â€śWall of Fameâ€ť has gone global! Seven WMIs from around the world have achieved Hall of Fame status, which is an incredible achievement for their short teaching careers of 5 years or less (Wilton classes started expanding in international markets in 2006). Their success is an example of how popular Wilton Method classes are around the world, and weâ€™ve only hit the tip of the iceberg!
Congratulations to our International Hall of Fame members!
