The Richland One Hall of Fame was established in 2004 to honor graduates of Richland One schools and other persons whose interests and activities – whether professional, vocational or voluntary – have resulted in significant contributions to the betterment of the school district, their communities, their states and/or our nation.
The achievements of Richland One Hall of Fame inductees will have reflected honor on the district. Inductees will be those whose personal qualities reflect the values of good character that Richland One seeks to promote in its students: respect, fairness, kindness, cooperation, honesty, dependability, responsibility, good citizenship, caring and self-discipline.
The Richland One Hall of Fame Selection Committee, a panel appointed by the Board of School Commissioners, will recommend up to, but no more than, five (5) inductees in any single year to the Board of School Commissioners for its approval. Nominees may be alumni of Richland One schools or persons who did not attend Richland One schools; however, the majority of honorees inducted each year will be alumni of Richland One schools.
