CROCKETT – The Crockett Independent School District will induct four new members into an exclusive fraternity on Friday, Sept. 21 during a halftime ceremony. This fraternity includes doctors, lawyers, professional athletes, teachers, coaches, mayors, city council members, a congressman and just plain old folks who made a significant contribution to the betterment of the school system in Crockett.
It is the Crockett ISD Ring of Honor.
This year’s class is composed of four inductees. They are: Johnnie Faye O’Neal Mask McKnight; David “Buddy” Cross; Dr. Everett Perry Ramsey III; and Thomas Standley Ramsey.
In a previously prepared statement from CISD Superintendent Terry Myers read, “On behalf of the Board of Trustees, Administration and Staff, I want to extend a hearty welcome and congratulations on your being selected for the Crockett ISD Ring of Honor. You were selected for contributions to the Crockett School Communities. You are part of a rich legacy and demonstrate a road map to success for the young people of today. The Ring of Honor is a blend of age, race and areas of accomplishment. The Ring of Honor represents the hard work and the extra effort it takes to reach standards of excellence in your lives. Thanks to all of you for that effort.”
“There is a process in place to add up to five new names annually to the Ring of Honor,” the statement continued. “An announcement will be made concerning this in April 2019. This announcement will be starting the application process for the selection of the 2019 honorees. We at Crockett ISD wish you and/or your family representatives the very best in the future. God bless you all.”
