A Season to Remember:
The 1954 Model High School
State Championship Football Team

This is the image for the news article titled Upcoming Event: A Season to Remember

On Tuesday, August 8, 2017, the Watters Historical Preservation Society and Model High School will present “A Season to Remember” in the Model High School auditorium beginning at 6:30 PM.  The project highlights the 1954 Blue Devil football team and their run through the regular season to the state championship game versus Claxton.  The program includes interviews by Randy Davis, owner of WLAQ Radio, and Hunter Hays, 2017 Model High School graduate and football player, of players and cheerleaders from the 1954 championship team.  The interviews provide interesting stories leading to a viewing of the actual championship game versus Claxton as narrated by Randy Davis and Jerome Webb, an all-state end on the 1954 Model team.

The collaborative project was the brainchild of Jack Dickey, President of the Watters Historical Preservation Society, who approached Model High School principal, Scott Savage about the idea.  Mr. Savage shared the idea with Model High Business Department Chair, Bill Hosmer, who served as project manager and involved his communications class students in the project. Hosmer says he is pleased to be part of the project for two reasons: 1) “It is an honor to play a small part in preserving a proud moment in Model Blue Devil heritage”, and 2) “The project presents an abundance of student learning opportunities within a relative context.”  

Students acquired audio and video assets using Canon cameras and ZOOM recording equipment, then edited these assets using Adobe Creative Cloud 2017 software, particularly Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Audition.  The result is a video series including: The Cheerleaders, The Pre-Season, The Season, The Game, and The Coaches, which will premiere on Tuesday, August 8, 2017 at 6:30 PM in the Model High School auditorium. The public is cordially invited to attend.  Admission is free.

For those who were unable to attend, you may view all assets associated with the project, with the exception of the game film (DVD's in production), at our Season to Remember web site.

Model High School Names Atrium
After Dr. and Mrs. Jones

photo (L to R): Current Model High School Principal Scott Savage, Dr. Nevin Jones, Pete O'Dillon, Jack DickeySchool leaders, family, and members of the community gathered Monday to dedicate the atrium in Model High School (MHS) in honor of Dr. Nevin Jones and the late Mrs. Joan Jones.

Model School alumnus Jack Dickey spoke of the importance of naming the heart of the school after a couple who has left a lasting impression on MHS and the Model community. “There’s no one who has done more for Model Schools than Nevin and Joan Jones, and Pete O’ Dillon and I wanted to memorialize them in some way,” said Dickey. “There are facilities on campus named after Coach Woodard and Coach Tuggle and Nevin had lot to do with that, so we wanted to make sure something nice was done for The Jones Family.”

In December 2014, MHS honored Dr. Nevin Jones with a plaque that hangs in the atrium as a way of saying “thank you” to Dr. Jones for his service and dedication to children and the community. The naming of the atrium was facilitated by Model School Alumni in honor of Dr. and Mrs. Jones for their supreme dedicated services and achievements to MHS and the entire Model community. The new plaque commemorating Jones Atrium holds more sentimental value to the community than that of most others hanging around the school. The wood is from a walnut tree cut off of Jack Dickey’s local farm.  

Dr. and Mrs. Jones retired with a combined 70 years of service to Floyd County Schools. Dr. Nevin Jones served Floyd County Schools as a teacher, coach, principal, assistant superintendent, and superintendent. The late Mrs. Joan Jones served as a beloved teacher and coach for Model Schools.

“Model has been my whole life since I started first grade here in 1935,” Dr. Jones said. “I think this is fabulous!”
