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. Winters JUSD is now accepting nominations for the next Hall of Fame class.

The Hall of Fame consists of three categories: Alumni, Employee and Distinguished Service. The eligibility criteria for each group are detailed on the nomination form found on the school district’s website at

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 is 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 Winters JUSD graduate but is a local citizen or businessperson who made extraordinary contributions to the district. This person’s contribution was a significant benefit or exceptional honor to the school district or one of its schools.

The submission process for this year’s nominations began on Jan. 13 and closes on Feb. 3. The Hall of Fame honorees will be selected and informed of their selection in mid-February. 

The inductees will be recognized at an Induction Ceremony on April 27.  Details about the ceremony will be announced at a later date.

Questions about the Winters JUSD Hall of Fame should be directed to Anietta Kelley, Assistant to the Superintendent,
