Lake Catholic is excited to reinstate the Hall of Excellence! The Hall of Excellence, started in 1990 by a group of committed staff, faculty and alumni, was designed to celebrate alumni and individuals with ties to the school who had made large contributions in a variety of areas.

Beginning this fall, Lake Catholic will be restoring the Hall of Excellence - and building out a new Athletic Hall of Fame! While the Athletic Hall of Fame will solicit nominations next year, the Hall of Excellence is calling for nominations right now! Nominations can be received for two categories: Professional Success and Service to the School.

Professional Success

Nominees should have made an impact at the local, state, or national levels through their professional success. These individuals may have been influential within their chosen profession or made large contributions within their field. The nominee should be of strong character and be a great representative of Lake Catholic High School if selected for induction.

Service to the School

Nominees in the Service to the School category would have made an impact at Lake Catholic High School. These individuals may have served as faculty or staff members, volunteered in booster organizations, supported the school in a philanthropic manner, or generally may have been a "friend" to the school over the years. The nominee should be of strong character and be a great representative of Lake Catholic High School if selected for induction.
