Dr. Gibson also announced that the district is looking at the possibility of naming the library at Marshall High School in honor of Mrs. McCoy, who had a lifelong love of reading and serving and working with children in Marshall.

Donations to the Glory McCoy Scholarship are currently being accepted. Anyone interested in making a donation to the scholarship fund may contact Anika Perkins, MISD Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, at 903-927-8811 or via e-mail at
