This appeared in today’s Daily Citizen:

The Searcy High School Class of 1954 knew that Calvin Skaggs would do great things because he was one of the most outstanding students to graduate that year. What they may not have known was that he would go on to become a highly respected film producer recognized around the world.

Because of his notoriety, the Searcy Public Schools Education Foundation has chosen to honor him and his accomplishments as an inductee into the Fourth Annual Hall of Honor. The event will be Jan. 25 in the Sullards Annex cafeteria at Searcy High School at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are only on sale until Jan. 19 and may be purchased at the Searcy Superintendent’s Office or by calling (501) 268-8315.

Skaggs was born in Perryville, Mo., and began his schooling in a one-room schoolhouse — literally a little red one.

His family moved to Searcy in 1947 where he entered sixth grade. He was valedictorian of the Class of 1954 at
Searcy High School.
