Smithfield-Selma High School celebrated the achievements of its alumni with an inaugural Hall of Fame dinner.
According to organizer Chris Lattimer, the SSS Hall of Fame acknowledges graduates who have made a difference in their industries and communities by excelling in their work and involvements.
The seven alumni who were recognized in the Smithfield-Selma High cafeteria included Lyn Andrews, Class of 1975; Dr. Rose Snipes Bynum, Class of 1972; The Honorable Tom Lock, Class of 1974; Darryl Lynn Lucas, Class of 1980; Andy Moore, Class of 1989; Tony Nixon, Class of 1976; and Mike Wooten, Class of 1981.
Lattimer, a teacher at the school, formed the alumni committee to execute the vision for the SSS Hall of Fame, which was developed by former principal Stephen Baker.
The dinner honored the past achievements of the school’s alumni and helped to strengthen ties with the community.
“The greatness of our past will inspire the excellence of our future,” said Lattimer at the event.
