In 1967 a special tradition was begun when students received letter sweaters as a reward for making A's all three years at Crockett. The sweaters were mostly for building self-esteem. Students with A averages throughout their Crockett careers would get these sweaters at the awards assembly at the end of the three-year period. Principal Felix Gibson came up with this idea as an incentive to make high grades. There were not that many students who earned the sweaters, but at least everyone tried. Since Crockett is now a two-year campus, students now receive a plaque for maintaining an all-A average for two years.
