Wall of Fame Dinner Gets Rave
On Tuesday, April 25, 2017,
alumni, friends, teachers, staff and families came together to honor the best
of the best at East Meck High School. Four alumni were inducted to the Wall of
Fame: Ed Chesnutt '58, Libby Whitescarver Privette '59, Joan Nesbit Mabe '80
and "NoLimit" Larry Mims '95. Our newest inductees were introduced by
Richard Vinroot '59, Rachel Harkey Helms '59, Larry McAfee and David Davis
The Foundation's newest endeavor was then announced: the All Star Eagle
Educator Hall of Honor. At that time, 3 educators were recognized for their
dedication and commitment to the East Meck High School Community. Mr. D.K.
Pittman was remembered for being our first Principal and leading East for 23
years. Mr. Gene Morgan received a standing ovation for his 40 years as Teacher,
Assistant Principal and Volunteer at East Meck. The crowd was then brought to
its feet again as Mr. Larry McAfee, Teacher and Coach, was acknowledged for
dedicating his career to East Meck students.
The program closed out with remarks from Jerry Helms '59 who encouraged some
friendly fundraising competition between the decades, explaining that the
Foundation set up 6 separate funds, one for each decade of East Meck graduates.
He then led the entire Auditorium in a beautiful rendition of our Alma Mater.
After the program, all attendees headed to the cafeteria where a delicious meal
was waiting for them. Dinner was prepared and served by the award winning
Culinary Arts Department. While enjoying their meal, alumni and friends
filled out pledge cards and made donations to the Foundation to help the
continued support of East Meck Teachers.
As part of our Wall of Fame
Dinner, we challenged our Alumni to donate along with their fellow decade of
graduates. Each decade was talking a big game! Here are the
rankings so far:
1st Place: the '80s
2nd Place: the 2000s
3rd Place: the '50s
4th Place: the '90s
5th Place: the '70s
6th Place: the '60s
