Special to The Greenup Beacon
Steven Holt and Colonel Gregory Scott Keeton will join Russell High School Hall of Fame during 2015 Alumni Association Homecoming Activities, Oct. 2.
The Russell High School Alumni Association will sponsor several activities in conjunction with this year’s homecoming festivities.
The organization’s members will participate in the homecoming parade on Thursday evening, and on Friday the unique tradition continues with Red Devil alumni leading the pre-game ceremony.
One of the highlights of each homecoming is the recognition of the newest members of the Russell High School Hall of Fame.
This will take place at the beginning of the halftime ceremonies at the October 2 homecoming game, against Fleming County.
The Alumni Association proudly joins with Russell High School to recognize outstanding individuals who have distinguished themselves as role models for our future leaders.
Being honored this year are Steve Holt, author and retired Russell High School English teacher, and alumnus USAF Colonel Gregory Scott Keeton, Class of 1990.
Mr. Holt taught in the Russell Schools for 43 years and an adjunct professor at Ohio University Southern for 24 years.
He has authored five books of critically acclaimed poetry and has received numerous awards for his teaching and writing.
Colonel Keeton, a 1990 graduate of Russell High School, is Commander of the EURONATO Joint Jet Pilot Training Wing based at Sheppard AFB near Wichita Falls, Texas.
The training program is the only one of its kind in the world. Col. Keeton is a graduate of the Air Force Academy and his primary aircraft is the F-15C.
With these new members, the Russell High School Hall of Fame will have 33 alumni and 23 community contributors who have been inducted since 1996.
