Third Round of Hall of Famers Sought

Sweetwater District inducts next class of alumni

The military, public service, the arts, business... these are just a few of the arenas that Sweetwater District graduates have conquered since crossing the stage at graduation. Sweetwater is on the lookout for its third class of inductees, but time is quickly running out for nominations. Less than two weeks remain until the October 15 deadline to submit graduates and their stories.

What does it take to be a Sweetwater Hall of Famer? Anyone who has made a difference —across the country, the state or the region— in academia, the arts, business, community service, the military, public service, sports, or other areas are eligible.

The district was formed in 1920, with its namesake high school, Sweetwater High. District graduates from every decade since then, through the 1990s, have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.

“We’ve always known that Sweetwater students are the best there are,” said Sweet-water Board President Arlie Ricasa. “And the Hall of Fame is our way of recognizing the amazing accomplishments of our graduates for their achievements here in the South Bay and throughout the world.”

With the next Hall of Fame ceremony slated to be held on March 5, 2004, now is the time to get in your nominations for the next round. Forms can be obtained from any Sweetwater District school, from the Grants and Communications office or downloaded from the district website.
