After enlisting he never went on to receive a high school diploma or GED. Kathi Hansell Hendrix believed that McCracken deserved a diploma and got the ball rolling when she sent a letter to the in the fall of 2019. Principal Shell was happy to fulfill the request and planned on handing out the diploma at the 50 year class reunion in May 2020, however, COVID-19 put a pause on that. Determined, Mr. Shell didn't give up honoring McCracken and on Tuesday August 25 Reed McCracken was handed his diploma. Congratulations Mr. McCracken. Thank you for your service!
