Alumni Hall of Fame

Current Hall  of Fame Wall_

The CASD Board of Education initiated the Alumni Hall of Fame program in 2004, inspired by school board member Jim Tobin. It was created to honor those Grayling High School and Frederic High School graduates who have attained advanced education degrees and/or won high honors or awards and/or contributed significantly to the lives of others, and to provide inspiration to today's students -- in the form of the ceremony and the visual reminder pictured above -- that CASD graduates can and do achieve at highly impressive levels in a wide variety of disciplines and in a wide variety of locations.

The Hall of Fame is a collaborative effort of the CASD Board of Education and private individuals who have donated funds. Contributions to offset expenses from friends of the CASD are always welcome.

The first Alumni Hall of Fame induction ceremony was held on May 2, 2004, in the newly remodeled Joseph H. Stripe Auditorium. At that ceremony, 17 graduates -- including doctors, dentists, pharmacists, attorneys, educators, researchers, politicians and diplomats -- were honored.

The seventh induction ceremony was held on May 4, 2014.

The eighth ceremony will be held on Saturday, September 9, 2017. The public is very welcome and encouraged to attend.

The due date for nominations is May 31, 2017.
