Larry Perkinson was inducted into the Bartholomew Consolidated Schools Education Hall of Fame at a ceremony last night at the school board meeting. Perkinson, the district’s student assistance coordinator has been an educator for 40 years.
School board member Kathy Dayhoff-Dwyer heads the committee that makes the annual choices for the Hall of Fame. She said the idea of inducting Perkinson drew immediate support from everyone on the committee. She said that Perkinson is known for his big heart and connection with students.
School board member Rich Stenner said that induction into the Hall of Fame is the second highest honor the district bestows, second only to naming a school after an educator.
