Hall of Fame 2018: Legends of LCVT/LCCTC

— The Eagle Staff

Alan Jackson wrote “You Can Always Come Home”:

Spread your wings, don't be afraid to try
The world can be hard, you gotta live a little 'fore you die
So open that door, step out in the bright sunshine
Follow your heart, and remember any time

You can always come home
Wherever life's road leads, you can get back
To a love that's strong and free
You never be alone, in your heart there's still a place
No matter how right or wrong you've gone
You can always come home

On a warm…a VERY warm October 6th evening, Lawrence County Vo-Tech/Career and Technical Center (LCVT/LCCTC) proudly recognized four outstanding graduates, a retired teacher, and a founding father of vocational education in Lawrence County. Their credentials were impressive: a former employee for America’s Department of Defense, a Carnegie Mellon graduate, a Graphic Artist for Newsweek, a public servant, a life-long educator, and the “Father of Vo-tech.” Their plaques will be prominently displayed for all to see in the hallway of their alma mater where they can inspire young people for years to come.

For family, friends, graduates, and current staff, a great time was had by all. Members of SkillsUSA (formerly-known as VICA) proudly welcomed graduates for a tour of the school. Faraone Brothers provided tasty food and drinks while their DJ gave those celebrating a mix songs from the past with a few current favorites perfect for dining and dancing. Congratulations to the Hall of Fame Committee for another successful reunion!

And, of course, congratulations to the Hall of Fame Inductees! Enjoy pictures from the event by scrolling through.
