dedicated their All-Star Wall to Ragan in September, 1998.
This wall recognized their top sales people, who decorated tiles which
appeared on the All-Star Wall.
Ragan's tile was placed there in August, 1998.

Phase 2 All-Star Wall, Dr. Craig Olson, principal in 1999, was
inspired. He discussed with PLHS staff how such an idea could
be used in the school and from these discussions, Ragan's Wall
evolved. S.O.S. happily accepted the responsibility of
overseeing the selection process and the assembly where the
inductees are recognized.
