Dedication of the new Wayne Gossett Library

By Patsy Hall

On October 30, 2017, friends, family, students, and faculty gathered in the new Richland Springs ISD library for a special dedication ceremony. The beautiful new library was formally named the "Wayne Gossett Library" in memory of Wayne Gossett.

The ceremony opened with Superintendent Don Fowler welcoming guests and telling a story about Mr. Gossett. Mr. Fowler knew from that experience that Mr. Wayne Gossett was committed to the small school at Richland Springs, as well as the community. Mr. Gossett ("Wayne," as all of Richland Springs and Elm Grove knew him) was instrumental in the refurbishing of the former library many years ago.
