With the votes tallied and results in, the Midlothian ISD Hall of Honor is ready for its 2017 class.
The hall of honor was established to celebrate individuals, teams and supporters who have distinguished themselves through excellence in athletics, and inspire interest and enthusiasm for athletics within Midlothian ISD. The individuals or teams inducted will be honored during a special event and dinner on Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018 at Midlothian Heritage High School.
