Chet and Shellie Hartford and Bill and Sue Mullen were recognized as Roncalli’s 2014 honorary alumni during halftime of Friday’s homecoming football game between the Rebels and Martinsville, which the Artesians won 12-10.
The Hartfords, married 23 with three children, have been part of the Roncalli “family” for the past nine years.
Mrs. Hartford is the assistant principal for student activities.
When Mr. Hartford is not working at FedEx, he can be found behind the wheel of one of Roncalli’s buses chauffeuring a team or fine arts contestants. He participates in the annual spring break service learning trip to Appalachia, works with the tech department during fine arts productions and volunteers with the band and theater.
The Mullens have been making contributions to Roncalli for the past two decades.
Mrs. Mullens has been a longtime volunteer in the Spirit Store and helped launch the post-prom to new heights through her countless efforts to secure new sponsors.
Mr. Mullens has been a longtime member of the facility committee and has worked to save money on construction projects.
The couple are the parents of Roncalli graduates Pat (2001) and Maureen (2005).
