Each year, the Wylie community is asked to reflect on individuals who they feel have impacted Wylie ISD and the community-at-large and nominate them for the Wylie Hall of Honor. Nominations can be submitted to the Wylie school district by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and are due on Tuesday, August 1.
Wylie Assistant Superintendent Terry Hagler said the Wylie Hall of Honor was established 16 years ago with the intention of honoring “alumni, faculty, staff, and community members who have demonstrated notable accomplishments or provided significant contributions to their school, community or society.”
“Wylie has a history of outstanding students and educators as well as great role models and leaders. The highest honor that our school district can bestow on an individual is to induct them into the Hall of Honor,” said Hagler.
To be nominated for the Hall of Honor an alumni must have a minimum of 10 years since their attendance at Wylie. There are no restrictions for nominating community members and current faculty members are not eligible to be a nominee. Once an individual is nominated, they will be kept on file for future consideration if not selected during the 2023 nomination process.
Individuals chosen this year will be recognized at an induction ceremony in conjunction with Wylie homecoming ceremonies on Friday, Sept. 22, which is when the Bulldogs take on San Angelo Central.
Last year, Andy Brown along with Floyd and Addie Parris (posthumously) were selected to the join a long list of members. Since it began, 65 individuals have been selected as members into Wylie’s Hall of Honor, including Hugh and Brenda Sandifer, Becky Rentz, Cecil Davis, Mike and Jeannie Lunney, Pat Pennick, Stanley Whisenhunt, and Bess Hobbs to name a few.
