Hall of Fame

Since 1997, the Elizabeth Forward Alumni & Friends Association has been working in various ways to rally support for EF students and their schools and to enhance the image of public education in the Elizabeth Forward School District.

The Elizabeth Forward High School Hall of Fame is just one of many worthwhile activities of the association. The people inducted into the EFHS Hall of Fame are distinguished alumni who have made outstanding contributions in their chosen fields. They serve as positive role models for today’s students.

Applications for the Hall of Fame are independently reviewed by the association’s Nominating Committee. Guidelines stipulate that the nominee must be a graduate of either Elizabeth Forward or Elizabeth High School and a period of at least 10 years must have elapsed since his/her class graduated. Each nominee is considered on the basis of his/ her achievements since graduation from high school. Nominations are accepted on an ongoing basis, meaning nominees not selected for the current year will be considered in future years.

The Nominating Committee announces its selections in June of each year, and the Induction Banquet takes place on either a Saturday or Sunday in the Fall. Living inductees must be able to attend the banquet and are encouraged to participate in other Alumni Recognition Weekend activities.
