Folks at Cleveland High School recognized some special graduates Friday morning by inducting them into the school's hall of fame.
The 10 alums make up the fourth induction class for the Blue Raiders.
They span from the classes of 1969 to 1993 and were nominated by faculty, students and other alums.
Each inductee was recognized for their life of service, outstanding achievements and community impact.
Parts of Friday's ceremony even got a little emotional.
Principal Autumn O'Bryan says this year's class highlights a variety of backgrounds.
"We have everything from a man who designs military to a man who just redesigned his urban area in Nashville and has done this tremendous work with the music and the arts and a lieutenant colonel. So, we've got a lot of just really great stories," she said.

Danny Abshire, Class of 1975, Co-Founder, Newton Running
Deborah Burnette, Class of 1969, Captain, United States Navy
