Being the grandson and a son of icons is a little surreal. At least that is how Matthew Nelson describes it.
“You know the family tree is fairly amazing,” Matthew said. “We had an interesting family dynamic. Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, my pop (Ricky Nelson), a Heisman trophy winner on my mother’s side (grandfather Tom Harmon) and my uncle is Mark Harmon who stars on NCIS.”

In the spring of 2012 we designed a shirt at Ruston High for our students to wear in place of their regular uniform shirt if they chose. The design of this shirt really tells who we are and why we have achieved extraordinary success.
