Elizabethtown Independent Schools will begin recognizing its successful graduates along with outstanding athletes.
The EIS board voted Monday to create a Distinguished Alumni award program. The decision follows on the heels of the board’s approval of an athletic hall of fame for the district.
Superintendent Gary French, a graduate of Elizabethtown High School, said the program was something he wanted to see for a while and he hopes to get it started this school year.
“I’m very excited about this,” French said at the meeting.
