In a pre-game ceremony on Tuesday night, the eight seniors on the Bryant Lady Hornets softball team honored[more] Bryant High School teachers who had an effect on their years at the school.
Those honored included India Childress, Tim Hall, Charles Holiman, Nancy Hunt, Nancy Lafferty, Allen Scott, Jill Settle and Janet Watson. Each was asked to throw out a ceremonial first pitch.
The teachers were those “who (the players) feel had a special and positive impact on their development as a student and person,” said Lady Hornets head coach Debbie Clark. “Each senior wrote a statement about the influence of that teacher and it was read to honor them.
“I believe we need to celebrate those people who help us and have a positive influence in developing who we are,” the coach added. “And so many times we neglect to do that, especially publically.”
