In 1986, the Roosevelt Foundation began the Hall of Fame to recognize and honor outstanding alumni of Roosevelt High School.  Since that time, 46 graduates have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.  Plaques commemorating their achievements hang in the hallways of the school.

Currently, the Foundation inducts up to 3 Roosevelt alumni into the Hall of Fame each spring, and it is a very fun event!  An all school assembly is held to honor the inductees and offer them a chance to share their wisdom with the student body.  They also spend the afternoon visiting classrooms and interacting with the students. In the evening they have a chance to celebrate with family, friends, and other Roosevelt folks.

Anyone may nominate a Roosevelt graduate for the Hall of Fame, as long as the nominee meets the following criteria:  must have graduated from Roosevelt 10 years prior to receiving the award; must be outstanding in their field of work; must be of good character; and must be available to participate in a full day’s activities.  Nominations are accepted year round, selection process begins in January, with induction taking place in April.  Nomination forms can be obtained by contacting The Roosevelt Foundation at trhsfoundationdm@gmail.com.  So think back on your high school days and colleagues, and see if you can’t think of someone deserving of this very special award.  Thank you.
