Clear Creek ISD established the Athletic Hall of Honor in 2016 to recognize the efforts and contributions of former student athletes, coaches and teams who have brought distinction, honor and excellence to themselves and the Clear Creek Independent School District.

Due to the volume of alumni worthy of such an honor, when nominations are sought annually, each year they encompass a specific era, folding in CCISD high schools as they were created. For the current 2017 nomination season, nominations were only considered for candidates active or enrolled from 1948 to 1972 and whose athletic career was linked to the former Webster High School or Clear Creek High School.

“We are delighted to welcome this group of outstanding athletes and individuals to the CCISD Athletic Hall of Honor,” said Hall of Honor President, Dr. Lynn Davis. “It’s so important that these champions know they left an indelible mark on their school, district and community, one that is still remembered and honored today.”

The athletes will be officially inducted on Friday, October 6, 2017 at a special ceremony and reception as well as during a ceremony before kickoff of the Clear Creek Wildcats and Clear Brook Wolverines game at 7:00 p.m. that same evening at CCISD Challenger Columbia Stadium.

The CCISD Athletic Hall of Honor, which operates as a 501(c)3 and under an independent Board of Directors, gratefully acknowledges founding sponsors, Lewis Jewelers and the Luis Garcia family for their generous support of the formation of the Athletic Hall of Honor and tribute walls on display in Challenger Columbia Stadium. The Athletic Hall of Honor welcomes the 2017 Gold Medal Sponsors: Hometown Bank, Oral Surgery Associates, Joe and Jennifer McKinney and Gulf Coast Educators Federal Credit Union.
