In 2018 the Winters Joint Unified School District launched the inaugural Hall of Fame, a recognition program that honors those who have gone above and beyond for our school district and community to be recognized for their work and be honored for what they do. The Hall of Fame consists of three categories: alumni, employee, and distinguished service. The eligibility criteria for each group can be found on the nomination form found on the District Website at or at any of our school offices.   Alumni are eligible to be nominated 10 years after graduation from Winters High School, an employee is eligible five years after retirement, and a distinguished service inductee has no time requirements.  An alumnus nominee was a student who demonstrated high quality and character and was actively engaged in school programs while in school.  An alumnus nominee will have continued those qualities as a professional adult, specifically in their career/professional accomplishments, military service, or community service.   Former district employees nominated must have demonstrated outstanding qualities that had a significant impact on school scholastics, athletics, or other student-centered activities. He or she must have had an exemplary life of community service and good character.  The final category is the distinguished service inductee. This nominee is not necessarily a graduate from the district but is a local citizen, local business person, or a former employee of the district who made extraordinary contributions to the district. This person’s contribution was a significant benefit or exceptional honor to the district or one of its schools.  The submission process for the nominations begins on Thursday, Sept. 5 and closes on Friday, Nov. 15. The Hall of Fame honorees will be selected and informed of their selection this December. The inductees will be recognized at the Induction Ceremony on Thursday, April 23, 2020 and will participate in the Youth Day parade in a special float designed for them.   If you have any questions regarding the Winters JUSD Hall of Fame, contact Assistant to the Superintendent Anietta Kelley at or call the District Office at 530-795-6100.]]>
