Redskin's Remember

The McLoud Alumni Association recognizes past Teachers, School Personnel and/or Board Members each year at the annual Alumni Reunion.  These honorees are added to the Redskin Remember Program.  This program was started in 2004 and three to five people have been honored every year since. The honoree is given a plaque and their names are added to the plaque that sits in the J.E. Walker Fieldhouse trophy case.
