After the initial recognition of the first inaugural class of the FISD Athletic Hall of Honor, the members will be recognized once again Thursday. A luncheon is scheduled at the FISD Athletic Office at 11 a.m. to re-honor those inducted.

Three months after the initial recognition of the first inaugural class in the FISD Athletic Hall of Honor, at the Reedy vs. Frisco football game, there is a luncheon Thursday at 11 a.m in the FISD Athletic Office to officially welcome the first inductees. 

“Frisco ISD has a great tradition of success in athletics, including achievements in competition and the ways athletics programs have contributed to the overall educational experience of students,” FISD Athletic Director Jerry Littlejohn said via email. “With so many former athletes, coaches, teams, and community members who have contributed to the success over the years, the District felt like it was time to create an official way to honor them and put a spotlight on FISD’s rich athletic history.” 

A committee of 10 individuals including: former FISD athletic directors, a former FISD superintendent, and several former longtime FISD coaches and coordinators decided the inaugural members.

“The committee members met several times over a period of [time] and gathered a large list of names of potential candidates,” FISD Facilitator of Athletics Matt Wixion said. “It then discussed the potential candidates, and at a later date, members voted on the candidates for the inaugural Hall of Honor class.”

After the luncheon, the members of the Hall will still be recognized, as two large touch screens display the contents of the Hall in the FISD Athletic Office. 

“After the initial Hall of Honor class, members of the Frisco ISD community will be able [to] nominate members for the annual Hall of Honor class,” Wixion said. “More information on that will be shared with the community after the first class is inducted.”
