Hall of Honor
History of The Distinguished Hall of Honor
The Hall of Honor, which began in 2006, recognizes those alumni who have distinguished themselves beyond their high school years through their significant accomplishments or service. The distinguished alumni are feted on both Friday and Saturday of the Hall of Honor weekend. Friday, the honorees meet with students at the high school, tour the building, speak to a number of classes, are served lunch by the Culinary Academy in the Blackhawk Cafe, and are presented with their plaques which are prominently displayed in the high school auditorium foyer. Saturday, the honorees are feted at a banquet in their honor at the Aurora Country Club and are presented with replicas of their Hall of Honor plaques.
The Hall of Honor program’s goals are to honor distinguished alumni for their achievements and national / international impact and to raise the self-expectations of West Aurora students with the realization that the distinguished alumni grew up in their neighborhoods and attended their schools.
The A+ Foundation continues to seek distinguished alumni to add to its Hall of Honor. If you would like to nominate someone, please fill out the online nomination form or contact Ingrid Roney, firstname.lastname@example.org.
