• Wall of Fame

     

    Since 1994, the Wall of Fame has honored dozens of members of the school community who have made unique and significant contributions to our district.  Honorees are teachers, administrators, support staff, parent volunteers, and so many others who have gone above and beyond in their own special way to help make Upper Merion all that it is. The annual awards ceremony takes place each fall and honorees are presented with a tribute plaque that is then displayed in the designated school building 

     
     

    What It Takes to Become a Wall of Fame Honoree

    To say that the journey to the Wall of Fame honor is a long one, may be a bit of an understatement.
    ·  First, someone or a group of people must feel strongly enough about the positive nature of  a person’s contributions to the district to sponsor that individual as a Wall of Fame nominee;
    ·  The sponsors must then set out to obtain signatures and positive comments of support for the nomination.  There must be at least 50 people who are in agreement that the nominee should receive the award;
    ·  Nominations are reviewed for completeness and justification by the Wall of Fame Committee;
    ·   The Committee forwards its recommendation to the Board of School Directors, which makes the final decision.
