The Roosevelt Foundation is pleased to showcase the classes inducted into the Roosevelt Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame recognizes the accomplishments of Roosevelt High School (RHS) graduates, and former RHS staff and contributors who have brought pride and inspiration to Roosevelt, the community, and society. Links to the classes and individual lists of accomplishments can be found above, along with more information about the hall, guidelines, and various forms.
As our students pass through the halls, can see descriptive plaques honoring the RHS alums who became successful and famous in many fields and who walked the same halls as they do each day. More Hall of Fame members will be added each year to inspire and motivate our students.
The inaugural Hall of Fame members were inducted on September 27, 2014. The banquet took place at the Airport Hilton. Over 210 honorees, families, and friends dined and saluted the honorees. Twenty-one of the 22 either attended or were represented by family at the induction ceremony and banquet, and each spoke briefly. Most emphasized the importance of their high school, teachers, and those who helped them become who they are. All said they were very honored.
With over 50,000 graduates since its opening in 1921, many Roosevelt graduates have had distinguished careers, including a former U.S. Army Chief of Staff, a Nobel Laureate, many prominent professional athletes, noted authors, university professors, and prominent political figures. In addition, many former RHS staff members and community members have supported RHS in a distinguished manner.
