Flagpole Dedication to Take Place on Saturday
May 20, 2016

Belton Tiger pride will be on display at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 21, when a flag pole is dedicated in honor of Harry and Barry Wilson and all Belton Tigers. The ceremony will take place in the south parking lot of the Harris Community Center, 401 N. Alexander.

The ceremony is being conducted by former Belton bengaltiger-720327_960_720High School football players and coaches. Harry Wilson was seriously injured in a 1971 football game on Old Tiger Field. In the years since the injury, he and Barry have worked through challenging years together and exemplified Belton Tiger toughness, family focus, and social leadership.

All Belton Tigers and others from the public with an interest are invited to attend this event, which is sponsored by the Belton High School varsity football teams from 1967 to 1970.
