Six outstanding Warren Easton alumni have been added to the school’s Hall of Fame during a ceremony recently held at the school.

The Warren Easton Hall of Fame class of 2014 includes musician Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, educational leader Juanita Muhaimin Daunoy, retired Air Force Lt. Col. Glenn P. Huth, architect Ernest Verges, financial consultant Matthew Warren and golf pro Frank Mackel, deceased.

The addition of the class of 2014 will bring the Hall of Fame to 128 members and 18 honorary members.

As part of the ceremonies, college scholarships totaling more than $75,000 were awarded to Easton students.

Easton’s landmark building at 3019 Canal St., opened as Boys High School in 1913. It traces its roots to a predecessor school that opened in 1843.

Its tradition of academic excellence and high attendance and graduation rates were all factors that earned it a school performance score grade of A from the Louisiana Department of Education.
