Two distinguished graduates of Richland One schools will be inducted into the Richland One Hall of Fame in February, district officials announced at a news conference.
The Richland One Hall of Fame was created to recognize Richland One alumni and other persons throughout the district’s history who have made significant contributions to Richland One, their communities, their professions and society as a whole.
Induction into the Hall of Fame is the highest honor bestowed upon individuals by the Richland One Board of School Commissioners. Eighty-five men and women have been inducted since the Hall of Fame was established in 2004.
The members of the 2019 Richland One Hall of Fame induction class are:
- Judge Mildred Weathers McDuffie, a 1953 graduate of Booker T. Washington High School and a retired Richland One administrator who also served on Richland County Council and as a magistrate judge
- Dr. Lonnie Randolph, Jr., a 1968 graduate of Dreher High School and a retired Columbia optometrist who led the South Carolina State Conference of the NAACP for 14 years
The 16th Annual Richland One Hall of Fame Induction Gala will be held Saturday, February 1, 2020 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. The red carpet reception will begin at 5:00 p.m. and the program/dinner will begin at 6:00 p.m. Additional details about the gala, including ticket information, will be announced later.
