The Crossett School District’s Board of Education voted Monday to name three buildings on the Crossett High School campus after people who have contributed the cause of education in Crossett.

During the board’s meeting, the members voted unanimously  to change the name of the Crossett High School Auditorium to The CT Foster Auditorium; the high school educational “B” building to Roosevelt Early Hall; and the high school educational “D” building to Stanley Cheshier Hall.

Foster, a retired long-time band teacher, was in attendance at the meeting, though his presence had been solicited without his knowing why the board wanted him there. Through the years his students included musicians who not only went on to perform at the collegiate level but also professionally.
