The Brickyard to gain wall of fame
By Brian Bowden

The Thomson Bulldog Athletic Booster Club has established a way to permanently honor those exemplary people who have passed through the walls of The Brickyard since its beginning.
With the help of a selection committee the booster club put together, they have laid down the plans for a future wall of fame at the home of the Bulldogs.
The honorees will consist of student-athletes, coaches, administrators, staff or supporters who exemplify or exemplified the highest levels of moral and sportsmanship.
"Although it's not a requirement of the board to take action on this I think it would be a good show of support if it did," said McDuffie County School Superintendent Jim LeBrun at a board meeting on June 19. "I think it's a fabulous idea." The board voted, and unanimously agreed, with the recommendation of LeBrun.
Each year, at an annual fall banquet, the committee will announce up to three honorees to be bestowed with a plaque on the wall of fame. "We have had excellent athletes and scholar athletes in McDuffie County. I think it's a great idea," said Thomson High School Principal Cecil Strong. "We just have to make sure that we have the parameters in place to make sure the selection process is fair for all involved."
