Wesson Attendance Center recently inducted three senior students into its Class of 2023 Hall of Fame. They were Will Loy, Taylor Papizan and Orrin Ainsworth.

Each year, Wesson’s Hall of Fame inductees account for 5 percent of the senior class, and are voted on by secondary faculty and staff based on four attributes — academics, leadership, character and school participation/involvement. Induction into the Hall is the most prestigious honor that can be bestowed on a member of the senior class.

The three inductees were honored at a reception Wednesday morning. Family and close friends were invited to recognize and celebrate their achievement.
