November 13, 2006 - Collin County Community College District (Collin) honored six distinguished community members at the 2006 Living Legends Tribute recently. Hosted by the college and the Collin College Foundation, the event was underwritten by Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano.

This exclusive series honored community involvement by recognizing local individuals whose actions profoundly shaped the progress of Collin County. The tribute also paved the way for future leaders through a scholarship endowment fund for outstanding students.

In its fourth year, the tribute included six honorees from throughout Collin County:

  • Raymond B. Cooper, Wylie
  • Helen Hall, McKinney
  • Fred and Mazzie Moses, Plano
  • Jean and Mike Newman, Plano

The selection committee chose individuals who best exemplified the core values of Collin County Community College District: Learning, Service and Involvement, Creativity and Innovation, Academic Excellence, Dignity and Respect and Integrity.
