Thanks expressed for Hall of Fame induction success

Dear Editor,

I want to take this time to acknowledge those who made the Mineral Wells High School Athletic Hall of Fame possible on Friday, Oct. 23rd, at Ram Stadium. Also, I would like to congratulate the 13 inductees.

The Hall of Fame committee wishes to thank MWISD Superintendent Dr. Gail Haterius, head coach Gerald Perry and assistant coach Sean Harvey for all of their help in making it a night to remember for the inductees.

We wish to thank Index editor David May and sports editor Clint Foster, sports editor for their outstanding coverage in the Index that went way beyond the norm. We appreciate the help of Awards and More and Richards Signs. We could have not made this possible without the support of Nancy and Richard Stuart of Chicken Express.

I want to also thank the following committee members: Carl Turner, Fudgie Windam, Bill Sessum, Ricky Ashley, Barbara Upham, Rodney Henderson and Jackie Harvey.

I would also like to thank Freida Sneed and the staff at Travis school for allowing me to bring Super Bowl hero Alvin Garrett to their school for an inspirational message to the students. Garrett’s message to the students was to, “Give it all you got and let God do the rest” in school, sports and life.

Thanks again to all that made this day so special.

Jerry Hamilton, Founder and Chairman, MWHS Athletic Hall of Fame
