Jerald Everett of Clinton, a Hickory native and retired human resources consultant with the Social Security Administration, and Louisville native Paula Simmons Waggoner of Starkville, a retired mission- ary, were recognized as Alumnus and Alumna of the Year, respectively. Former Warrior football players James Mitchell, a Hickory native who resides in Nash- ville and serves as chaplain for the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, and Ronnie Parker, a Decatur native who now resides in Haymarket, Virginia, and is a fitness and personal training consultant, were the Athletic Hall of Fame inductees.
