Sweeny ISD Walk of Honor

Sweeny ISD Walk of Honor Mission Statement

The mission of the Walk of Honor is to recognize those individuals who have contributed to or laid the foundation for the legacy that is Sweeny I.S.D.

The Sweeny ISD Walk of Honor began as an idea of former Sweeny High School graduate, Sweeny ISD educator of 28 years, and current Sweeny ISD Board Member Mrs. Peggy Ellis.  Through her vision, a committee was formed consisting of community members, current and former teachers, and administrators that took to the task of honoring those that contributed to the legacy of Sweeny ISD.  From these efforts the committee set out to develop the criteria and categories for those that will be recognized by the Sweeny ISD Walk of Honor now and in the years to come.
