Outstanding Alumni and Faculty Hall of Honor Inductees
The Hall of Honor Award was established to honor former students of Oak Cliff High School and W. H. Adamson High School who have distinguished themselves in their careers, made significant contributions to society, and whose accomplishments and contributions have brought credit to the institution. In the case of former faculty members, who were added to the Hall of Honor inductions in 2013, we also honor devoted teachers and administrators who left a lasting, positive impression on their students. Adamson Alumni Association members in good standing (current dues paid) may submit nominations each year for the upcoming year's Hall of Honor inductees, which are then considered and voted on by the Board of Directors. The induction ceremony takes place during the All Class Reunion program. Click on the + sign to the right of each year below to view photos of the respective year's inductees. More information about all inductees will be added as we continue working on this new website. If you have anecdotes about any of the inductees that you'd like to share, please email your stories to Suzanne Bass at firstname.lastname@example.org.
