The Hartselle Educators Hall of Fame committee has selected the inaugural class for the 2016 Hartselle Educators Hall of Fame. The committee made the selections for the first class from 40 nominees who were submitted over the past three months. The committee had requested nominations for inductees from citizens in Hartselle and Morgan County for those who made a difference in their own education or their child’s education, for the past several months.

To be eligible for the Hall of Fame, a school board employee must be retired and worked in the Hartselle City School System for a minimum of five years. Nominations that came in were for teachers, administrators, coaches or someone who worked in education before there was a school for his or her students.

Inductees for the first class include:

Professor Issac Stallworth-longtime educator and principal at the Morgan County Training School

J.C. Pettey-former Morgan County High School principal and Morgan County Superintendent of Education

F.E. Burleson-longtime principal at Hartselle Elementary, now Burleson Elementary

J.P. Cain–longtime principal at Hartselle Junior High and Hartselle High School and football coach at Morgan County High (now Hartselle High)

Lizzie Reed Penn-longtime well loved English teacher

Professor J.H. Riddle-longtime educator and principal. He owned the Hartselle Academy at one time, which later became Hartselle Elementary and later F.E. Burleson Elementary

Caston McDaniel-donated land for the Rosenwall School, which later became Morgan County Training School and worked hard for education of African-American children before a school was available

Loy Greenhill-longtime principal at Crestline Elementary

John Frank Parker-longtime teacher and principal at Hartselle Junior High

Idessa Wherry–long time English teacher at Morgan County High/Hartselle High School

The inductees will be honored at a banquet to be held May 21, 2016, at The Burleson Center (Hartselle Fine Arts Center). Family members of inductees for those who have passed have been notified and invited to attend the banquet. The living inductees have also been notified and invited as well.

This will be an annual event going forward and nominations are being taken for the 2017 class of inductees.

The banquet will include a catered meal and the guest speaker will be MCHS graduate Don Logan. The public is invited to come and share in honoring the inaugural class of the Hartselle Educators Hall of Fame. The inductees’ biographies and life work will be recognized at the banquet.

Tickets for the event will be available for $25 each and can be purchased at the Hartselle City Board of Education and other locations to be announced.
