Distinguished Alumni Wall of Fame Adds Three More

In what has become an annual tradition of laughs, tears, and a lot of community pride, the Ed and Diane Donaldson Distinguished Alumni Award recognized three Brandon High School graduates and added their stories to those of the previous four recipients.

Leo Flood was a 1943 Brandon graduate who was killed in World War II. Current Brandon 11th grade student Noah Cox nominated Mr. Flood for the posthumous award, and it was a touching recognition of all that is wonderful in the community as Leo's family members were on hand to unveil his plaque.

Clark and Lori Cook graduated in 1979, and in the ensuing years they have built a Brandon landmark with their Cook's Farm Dairy on Seymour Lake Road. Nominated and introduced by Robin Laughlin, the Cooks were recognized for their many contributions to the community over the years, including sending their three children through the Brandon schools. And it wouldn't be a discussion of Cook's without a mention of their chocolate milk!

The Distinguished Alumni Wall of Fame is loacted in the foyer of the high school entrance next to the pool. Community members are encouraged to visit the display and enjoy the wonderful stories of our graduates.

And, as Dr. Outlaw asked at the ceremony, visitors can ask, "Who will be next?"
