Persons inducted into the Hall of Fame or must have graduated from a Shelby County Schools’ high school at least 10 years previous to their nomination and must have made measurable and recognized contributions both to their chosen profession or craft and to the community (or communities) in which they reside.
The Hall of Fame in previous years has honored community leaders from a wide variety of backgrounds, including: banking, retail business, medicine, community service, politics, religion, and education. The inductees are honored at the Foundation’s Evening of Excellence held in the spring of each year. The event celebrates the achievements of Shelby County Schools, highlights the many talents of the system’s students, and honors alumni inductees. If you know of someone who is worthy of this great honor, please submit a nomination form.
FedEX has been a major sponsor for our event for several years.
