Inaugural Alumni Wall of Honor Induction!

by Lynn Fuini-Hetten on November 23, 2016

img_5360We started planning our Wall of Honor over a year ago, and it was so exciting to see it finally come to fruition!

Last year, we worked with our stakeholders to determine what is important to us in our Wall of Honor Inductees.  The following are the requirements:

  • Nominees must be a graduate of Salisbury Township School District
  • Nominees must be at least 25 years old.
  • Nominees were evaluated on the following criteria:
    •  A commitment to learning
    •  Accomplishments in his or her chosen career
    •  Accomplishments related to volunteer work/service to other
    •  Special recognition or awards
    •  A positive impact on people or contributions to others

This past summer we received many nominations, all of whom had contributed significantly to their field and our community.  It was difficult to select only five recipients for this inaugural induction. Our 2016 inductees span graduation years 1978 through 2003, and they have all made us Falcon Proud!
