Clovis Unified School District hosted its annual kick off the new school year. But the celebration took a moment to honor the district's founding superintendent.

Dr. Janet Young said, "One week ago today we learned of the passing of our founding father, the architect of the Clovis Unified School District."

From 1960 to 1991 Floyd 'Doc' Buchanan worked on the blue print for what is now one of the largest school districts in the Valley. Current superintendent Doctor Janet Young says the yearly celebration was Doc Buchanan's favorite and he considered it very important.

"This is our most exciting event of the year when we gather 6,000 employees together," said Dr. Young. "To kick it off and do it in a really style and show our Clovis Unified School District pride. It's just so much fun."

Doctor Young says the students were always at the forefront for Doc Buchanan. Students and teachers return to the classroom on Monday.
