The seventh annual induction to the Wall of Honor will be part of Kingsland’s Homecoming celebration Friday, Sept. 26.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, Aug. 29. The annual tradition of honoring graduates as part of the “Building a Tradition of Excellence” theme was started in 2008.

Community members have the opportunity to nominate a former graduate who, upon graduating, has attained a high level of achievement in one of the following areas:  Personal and/or professional life, community contributions, or has demonstrated that education is a life-long experience.

Criteria for this award include having graduated from Kingsland, Spring Valley or Wykoff at least 10 years prior. The honor may be awarded posthumously. 

The significance of the Wall of Honor is to show the foundation that public education has provided to our community and our democracy. The support of public education and Kingsland Public Schools is an investment that continues to benefit the community.

Wall of Honor inductees will serve as role models for Kingsland students and encourage them to pursue high levels of achievement in their personal and professional lives, as well as promoting the ideals of contributing to the community and the focusing on education as a life-long experience.

The public is asked to thoughtfully consider who is worthy of being a Wall of Honor inductee. Nomination forms are available on the Kingsland website and at the district office. Nominations should be received by Friday, Aug. 29. Nominations received last year were held and automatically resubmitted this year.
