The Woodford County Board of Education recognized the Woodford County Public Schools Hall of Fame committee as its volunteer organization for December on Monday night, Dec. 19. The all-volunteer committee has been the driving force in establishing a Hall of Fame that recognizes distinguished graduates and others for their successes and contributions to the school system, schools Superintendent Scott Hawkins said. "If it weren't for (these dedicated volunteers) there would be no Hall of Fame," said board Chair Ambrose Wilson IV. "And not only do we have a Hall of Fame," he continued, "it is a first-class Hall of Fame." Since its inaugural class of inductees in 2012, the WCPS Hall of Fame has honored 56 individuals and seven groups for their varied accomplishments. "Each year," said Hawkins, "I am so amazed at the quality of the folks who are being inducted. Some of the things that they have gone on to do are just incredible." The WCPS Hall of Fame preserves the heritage of the district's schools by honoring its most accomplished alumnae in one of six categories, and upholding them as examples for current and future students.
