Wall of Honor recognizes outstanding individuals
Bullard Independent School District honored former students, staff, and community members who have impacted the district on May 2 in the Audrey B. Owens Auditorium at Bullard High School during the first Wall of Honor ceremonies.
BISD Superintendent Keith Bryant said, “We have a number of individuals who have positively impacted the district over the years, yet we have not had a way to recognize their accomplishments. The Wall of Honor gives us the opportunity to give these individuals the recognition they deserve.”
Inductees during the first ceremony were Edward Coffey, Daniel DuPree, Dr. O.L. Ferrell, Dr. Fred Hayes, Ann King, Edward Monzingo, Iotha Morgan, Roy & Polly Mosley, Janice Mulford, Laura Gene Newburn, Maurine Padrucco, Dr. Daniel Roper, Dr. Marjorie Roper, J.W. Rumbelow, Muriel and Joy Salmon, Fred and Lella Stripling, and Jack and Marvis Stripling.
“A special committee worked on this project for several months,” Bryant said. “Lynette Hughes, Assistant Superintendent and long-time Bullard resident, has been coordinating the work.”
Hughes was the master of ceremonies, reading biographies of each of the inductees. The formal biographies were interlaced with personal anecdotes she shared with the audience based on her personal knowledge of the inductees and more than 30 years of working for BISD.
