Childress, Garrett well worthy of honor
The Lincoln Parish School System and surrounding community recently paid homage to two legendary former Ruston High School coaches.
In March, the school board unanimously voted to name the RHS stadium after L.J. “Hoss” Garrett and the newly-constructed field house after Jimmy “Chick” Childress.
“From the record you have here at RHS, you are most deserving to have a field house named after you,” Superintendent of Schools Danny Bell said to Childress at the school board meeting last week, which was held inside the new field house.
