Five Bob Jones alumni inducted in 2012 Hall of Fame
Five alumni of Bob Jones High School inducted into the Hall of Fame will be recognized during homecoming events and serve as grand marshals in the homecoming parade.
“Each year, deserving students, former faculty members and community volunteers are nominated and some elected into the Bob Jones Hall of Fame,” principal Robby Parker said. “It is a great honor.”
“After the homecoming parade, they will have a reception and will be honored at halftime of the homecoming game,” Parker said.
In addition, the honoree’s photographs and biographical sketches will be exhibited in the newly renovated case for the hall of fame in the Zompa Auditorium lobby.
