Story and photography by Jimbob Baird

Special honors were bestowed on eight former graduates of Bowling Green High School on April 27, with their induction into the High School’s “Hall of Honor.” The neighborly ceremony and catered dinner took place at BGHS in Bowling Green to distinguish the honorees for their achievements in their adult lives.

“These folks have become honor inductees tonight will have their places on the wall of donor because of their accomplishments in the community,” said Sharon Dyrsen, one of the attendants. Since 1992, there have been 234 men and women recognized by being placed on the Purple’s Wall of Honor.
