    • To be on the Honor Roll, a student must earn an overall 3.5 average or better with no grade lower than a B-; and

Posted by McCallie Communications and Marketing on December 27, 2017

Fletcher Bright ‘49, one of McCallie School’s most loyal sons and a true renaissance man, passed away surrounded by family and friends at his home in Chattanooga on Christmas Day.
