Legends and Legacies to be held next week

Staff Writer

The Heritage Museum will honor some of the most influential people in Big Spring for the third year in a row, helping get rodeo week started for the residents around West Texas.
The Heritage Museum will be adding six more Big Spring locals to their Cowboy/Cowgirl Hall of Fame during the annual Legends and Legacies event to be hosted at the museum on June 13 right before the rodeo starts.
“This has become our yearly and only fundraiser for the museum,” said Tammy Schrecengost, director of the museum. “The funds that we generate from this go into maintenance and general funds for the museum.”
Every year, six people have been chosen for various contributions and the impact they have had on the Big Spring community. This year’s inductees include Tom Good and Charlie Creighton, who were among the founding members of the Big Spring Rodeo. The list also includes Dora Roberts, a local pioneer and a name that's not hard to recognize in Big Spring thanks to her benevolence. Robert Reagan, Carroll Choate, and Kent Morgan will also be inducted into the hall this year.
The event is set to take place on June 13 from 7 p.m to 9 p.m and “kicks off the rodeo week” according to Schrecengost. It will be presented by Mike Mathis, who also announces the rodeo, and will take place on the pavilion located at the Heritage Museum.
