LC-M honors alumni

LITTLE CYPRESS — The Little Cypress-Mauriceville Consolidated Independent School District’s Board of Trustees and Administrators honored the 2013 LC-M Award recipients on Friday, Nov. 1, at a reception at LC-M High School and again in front of the football crowd during half-time.

Those recognized included alumni who are serving or have served in the military. They are active servicemen, Lance Corporal John Clark and PFC Nathaniel Clark, U.S. Marines, and Staff Sergeant Cole Aven, U.S. Army. Those who are no longer active, but who have served honorably are Trini Gonzalez, First Lieutenant – U.S. Air Force and Gary Frederick – U.S. Army Staff Sergeant and Lance Corporal Shane Goldman, Marines, who died in combat during Iraqi Freedom.

Five graduates were named as Distinguished Alumni. They include Thomas Dunn, D.V.M. who practices veterinary medicine in Orange, local attorney Steve Parkhurst, family practice physician Calvin Parker, M.D., Joe Dan Dunn, Ph.D. who is conducting post-doctoral research at Duke University, and Orange County businessman, Ross Smith, owner of Akrotex and David Self Ford.

Hall of Fame inductees do not have to be graduates of LC-M, but must have made an impact of significance on the LC-M District. Long-time teachers, coaches and administrators, Linda and Larry Warner, were named to this year’s Hall of Fame, as were former Director of Bands Nelson Nolden and Ross Smith, an alumni and benefactor of LCM schools.
