The Hutchinson High School Wall of Honor is looking for nominees. A nominee has to be a Hutchinson High School graduate and have graduated at least 10 years prior to the nomination. The nominee must have attained a high level of achievement in at least one of the following areas:

  • Personal and/or professional life
  • Community service
  • Demonstrated that education is a life-long experience

Nominees will not be discriminated on the basis of race, creed, religion, sex, nationality, disability, economic or marital status. The award may be bestowed on individuals posthumously.

Nominations are due April 1, and forms are available in the Hutchinson High School office, 810 E. 13th Ave, or online at The nomination form requires basic biographical information, including lists of volunteer activities, special awards received and any supporting documentation, such as newspaper clippings. Additionally, the person making the nomination must write a paragraph explaining why the nominee deserves the honor.

A selection committee composed of two students, one HHS administrator, two HHS teachers and three HHS Alumni Association members will pick three alumni to add to the wall. All nomination forms will be kept on file and eligible for two years.

Those three Wall of Honor alumni will be honored in a series of events surrounding the fall HHS homecoming football game. Honorees who live outside the immediate area will need to make their own travel and lodging plans.

Each winner will receive a personal plaque and another plaque will be permanently mounted inside Hutchinson High School.
