The auditorium at Alton Middle School will soon be renamed after a long-time director at Alton High School. The late Cliff Davenport will be honored with the re-naming of the former high school auditorium during a gathering tomorrow afternoon on the Middle School campus.
A committee was formed last fall to plan the event and member Lee Cox, who was a former student of Davenport, says they have a nice program lined up. Cox says she hopes to see lots of past students Sunday at 2pm.
