Elizabeth Forward Alumni & Friends Association is still accepting nominations for the three awards – Hall of Fame, Educator Recognition and Outstanding Young Alumni – to be given as part of the Elizabeth Forward High School Hall of Fame festivities this fall. The deadline for nominations to be considered for the Class of 2022 is April 30.
The EFHS Hall of Fame award was established in 1997. Over the past 25 years, 134 distinguished alumni who have made significant contributions in their chose fields have been recognized.
Candidates for the EF Hall of Fame must be a graduate of either Elizabeth Forward or Elizabeth High School with at least ten years having elapsed since their graduation. Nominees are evaluated and selected on the basis of their outstanding accomplishments since high school. Categories used the selection process are the arts, business, education, government service, the sciences and sports. Others can be considered under special recognition for their community and leadership contributions.
The EF Educator Recognition award was established in 2001 to recognize dedicated educators, not necessarily alumni, for their positive contributions to the Elizabeth Forward schools and its students. To date, there have been 20 recipients of this honor.
The EF Outstanding Young Alumni Award was created last year to recognize the outstanding achievements of individuals who have distinguished themselves post high school through profession accomplishments and who have demonstrated the qualities of integrity and character early in their careers. Candidates must have graduated from Elizabeth Forward High School less than ten years ago.
This year’s Hall of Fame weekend is October 7-9. The induction banquet will be the afternoon of October 9 at the Georgetown Centre in Pleasant Hills.
Applications can be printed from the alumni website for the Hall of Fame and Educator Recognition awards. The Outstanding Young Alumni form can be obtained by calling Dr. Kevin Ryan at (412)953-0896 or emailing him at email@example.com. Ryan is also available to answer any questions regarding these awards.
EFAFA’s mission is to provide a means by which interested alumni and friends of Elizabeth Forward High School (formerly Elizabeth High School) can maintain an enduring relationship with past and present students, faculty, and staff of the Elizabeth Forward School District. By promoting Association membership and alumni activities and providing assistance to the School District and its stakeholders, the Association will accomplish its mission.
