MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – A salute to Fairley High School alumni who have done exceptional things in the community took place Tuesday night. It’s the first event in a year-long list of activities honoring Fairley’s 50th anniversary.
The bulldogs of Fairley wear black and orange, so it was fitting attendees walked the orange carpet.
Local 24’s very own Sports Director Doc Holliday was among those honored Tuesday for his work at the station.
“Of course, Fairley teachers and principals, teammates, and friends had a lot to do with my success now. So, it’s just an honor to be back here in these halls and be a part of this inaugural class,” said Holliday.
Holliday was the first in the new tradition called the Wall of Wisdom, which is prominently placed in the main entrance of Fairley High. Organizers say it’s meant to be a reminder to students of their maximum potential.
