School District will induct a total of five new members into the Bullard ISD Wall of Honor in a ceremony to be held 2 p.m. Sunday, April 8, inside the Audry B. Owens Auditorium, located on the Bullard High School campus.
“We had several nominees for the Bullard ISD Wall of Honor this year,” said Jan Hill, Bullard ISD Deputy Superintendent. “It is a great honor and privilege to induct great members of the Bullard community into the Wall of Honor. Like every year, this class has done many wonderful things to better Bullard ISD.”
New members of the Bullard ISD Wall of Honor Class of 2018 to be inducted include Dr. John and Misty Alexander, Sharon Brooks Ray, Darlene Johnson Marshall, and Billy Jack and Patsy Fielding.
“Honoring these worthy men and women in the Bullard ISD Wall of Honor shows respect to both the school and the Bullard community,” said Hill. “When you talk about Bullard, you talk about the great school district and the wonderful community; it is like they are both family.”
The Bullard ISD Wall of Honor recognizes former students who have distinguished themselves in their careers and service to others and have brought honor to their former school. Also included in the Wall of Honor are former staff members, members of the United States military, and community members whose many years of service and contributions to Bullard ISD have enriched the lives of Bullard ISD students.
