ISD Honors 2018 McCoy Award Recipients
Proud parents, guardians, families and teachers filled the William Chrisman High School auditorium to honor 150 recipients of the McCoy Award. The award is given to students from Truman, Van Horn and William Chrisman for academic excellence during their first four semesters of high school. Each recipient took the stage and was presented their McCoy medal.
“Receiving this medal says a lot about you,” Deputy Superintendent Dr. Cindy Grant told the students, “To reach this point academically, you have had to go the extra mile. Tonight is a tribute to your work ethic.”
First established in 1902, the McCoy Award is named after William McCoy, the first mayor of Independence. In 1984, the Independence Board of Education reinstated the McCoy Award and since then, more than 3,000 ISD high school students have received the prestigious McCoy medal.
