Clear Creek ISD established the Athletic Hall of Honor 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 will encompass a specific era, folding in CCISD high schools as they were created. For the current 2016 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.

 

The athletes, or their surviving family members standing in their place, will be honored and officially inducted on Friday, September 23 at a special ceremony and reception as well as during a ceremony before kickoff of the Clear Creek Wildcats and Clear Springs Chargers 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 Lewis Jewelers and the Luis Garcia family for their generous sponsorship of the Athletic Hall of Honor tribute walls to be displayed in Challenger Columbia Stadium.
