College ath­letes who are also Yel­low Jacket alumni past and present are needed, and soon.

Ath­letic Di­rec­tor Barry Wil­liams said plans are still un­der­way to put up a College Wall of Fame in the gym­na­sium en­trance to honor those who played sports and fin­ished with pro­grams both at Rock­mart High School, and later on the col­le­giate level.

“We’ve had a few peo­ple who have taken part so far, but we’re look­ing for many more to pro­vide us with in­for­ma­tion,” he said.

The idea is to honor past ath­letes who grad­u­ated from Rock­mart who went on to ca­reers with schools small and large with a dis­play. He also hopes it serves as a in­spi­ra­tion to cur­rent stu­dents to reach for more.

“We want to rec­og­nize those who have made it to the next level,” he said. “They have done some­thing that the com­mu­nity can be proud of, and de­serve to be shown our sup­port for their achieve­ments.”

He added the only items he needs from former ath­letes are in­for­ma­tion about when they at­tended Rock­mart High, what pro­grams they later took part in on a col­le­giate level, and pic­tures of them­selves – prefer­ably in uni­form – from their time in school.

Wil­liams asked for those who fit the bill to con­tact him at the school by call­ing 770-684-5432, or to e-mail him at [email protected] polk.k12.ga.us.
