The Felton F. Waggoner Hall of Honor Board would like to take this opportunity to invite you join us in recognizing four outstanding individuals for induction into the Hall of Honor. Designed to recognize former Deer Park High School graduates who have excelled in their field of expertise and made significant contributions to their respective communities, the Hall of Honor is named for Felton F. Waggoner, a former high school principal who served the district from 1950 until his retirement in 1973.
Twelve inductees were initially honored in 1997 and each school year, four inductees have been added. An exhibit is on display in the mall of the south campus high school where the inductees are artistically portrayed with a brief history of their accomplishments.
It is important for the members of this organization to keep the standards high for the selection of honorees. We want the members to represent a diverse cross section of the quality of former graduates who have continued to represent excellence in their personal and professional lives.
Each year, a nominating committee made up of Hall of Honor Board Members selects twenty of the nominees to be presented to the nineteen-member Board. The board narrows the field until a maximum of four individuals are chosen to be inducted into the Hall of Honor. These individuals are then honored at the annual Felton F. Waggoner Hall of Honor Banquet and Induction Ceremony.
Eighty-eight graduates have been honored since 1997. They are:
Arnold Adair, Tommy D. Archer, Kara McMahon Bailey, Byrd B. Baggett, Blake Barnes, Michael Beard, Sylvia L. Beckey, Chelsi Smith Blair, Greg Bridges, David M. Brown, Colin Broussard, Marion B.
