On Friday, January 4th, 2013, Wilcox County High School held a ceremony officially renaming the WCHS Ag building to the John David McCall Agricultural Building. Members of the McCall family, school faculty and staff, the WCHS FFA officers, and friends of Mr. McCall attended the ceremony. Wilcox County Schools superintendent Steve Smith began the ceremony by telling everyone in attendance that he learned Mr. McCall was a man of strong character, a loving father, and a dedicated teacher. Mark McCall and Rachael Becker both talked about their father and the wonderful influence that he had been on their lives and the lives of others. Riley McCall shared one of her more memorable moments with her grandfather. Other speakers included Val Sutton, Donnie Clack, Myra Davis, and Allen Ellicott.
The John David McCall Agricultural Building is only a small token of the appreciation that Wilcox County Schools and it’s staff have for the wonderful teacher, husband, father, mentor, and friend that we are all blessed to have known.
