Students and staff at Winfree Bryant Middle School celebrated a special occasion Friday.
Cordell Winfree, one of the school’s namesakes beside Hattie Bryant, celebrated his 90th birthday. The school had a luncheon in honor of the milestone and students presented Winfree with a gift.
Principal Becky Kegley said “We are so proud of the heritage this school has. We want [Mr. Winfree and Ms. Bryant] to know they are still a part of this school.”
She also said she wanted Winfree to “see the fruits of all he’s done” for not only Winfree Bryant, but also the school district in general.
Lebanon Special School District Director Scott Benson was in attendance for the special day
“It’s great to be here and to celebrate with Mr. Winfree,” Benson said. “He has done so much for our schools.”
