2016 Woodford Hall of Fame
The Woodford County Public Schools Hall of Fame's fifth class will be inducted at a dinner on Sept. 10. at WCMS. The 2016 class includes 12 individuals and a group of eight longtime volunteers. This week we profile: Public Service (Extraordinary achievement in public service):
Jerry Davis (WCHS, 1974): Davis has gone to extraordinary lengths to build and strengthen the bond among Woodford County alumni. He has organized reunions that range in size from happy-hour gatherings to a weekend celebration of the 50th birthday of WCHS in 2014. Much of Davis's work to connect Woodford graduates has been online, with Facebook pages dedicated to alumni events and updates. His Picture Then page, followed by more than 3,200 people, serves as a memorial for Woodford Co. students and teachers. Davis has scanned and posted every page of every WCHS yearbook on his website, WoodfordReserved.com. .
Tricia Nave Kittinger (WCHS, 1975): For 34 years, Kittinger served her home community as a friendly and effective administrator. For more than half of that time, she was the Circuit Court Clerk, first elected in 1994 and serving until 2013. Kittinger supervised a staff of 10 and was responsible for the records and proceedings of three courts and five judges. She also managed the driver's license process and collected state funds and fees. Kittinger served as Special Clerk for several surrounding counties, lending her experience and expertise to other offices. Legacy Award: The Hall of Fame periodically recognizes individuals whose contributions to the school community are deemed to be exceptionally inspiring. In high school sports, most of the attention is focused on the game, as players strive for team victory and personal achievement. Parents assist, providing time, funds and emotional support for their children and the team. Another group of adults-a small number of highly dedicated individuals-is being recognized for the time, talents, care and contributions they have given to Woodford Co. students. Their service spans decades of duties that include managing concessions, organizing equipment and tracking statistics. Often, they served as surrogate parents. It is these volunteers who the Hall of Fame recognizes with the Legacy Award: . Dick Brock; . Gayle Douglas (1942-2007); . Ron Peters . Johnna Pettyjohn; . Pete Pettyjohn; . King Richeson (1920-2006); .Sue Sanders; . Phyllis Washington.
