Kingsland Schools will celebrate Homecoming Sept. 27 and the annual induction to the Wall of Honor will be part of the celebration. The tradition of honoring graduates as part of the district's theme of "Building a Tradition of Excellence" was started in 2008 and is an annual event.

Community members have the opportunity to nominate a former graduate who, after 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 lifelong experience.

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

The significance of the Wall of Honor is to show the foundation that public education has provided to the community and our democracy, said school officials. 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 lifelong experience.

Nomination forms are available on the Kingsland website and at the district office. Nominations should be received by Wednesday, Sept.11. Nominations received last year were held and automatically resubmitted this year.
