Winters Joint Unified School District
Special to the Express
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 honored for what they do.
The Hall of Fame consists of three categories: alumni, employee and distinguished service. The eligibility criteria for each group is detailed on the nomination form found on the Winters JUSD website at www.wintersjusd.org/hof.
Alumni are eligible to be nominated 10 years after their 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. They 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 or businessperson who made extraordinary contributions to the school district. This person’s contribution was a significant benefit or exceptional honor to the district or one of its schools.
The submission process for this year’s nominations begins on March 28 and closes on April 22. The Hall of Fame honorees will be selected and informed of their selection in late April. The inductees will be recognized at an Induction Ceremony on May 25. Details about the ceremony will be announced at a later date.
