Hall of Fame.
El Rancho Unified School District, Pico Rivera, CA.
A Hall of Fame was established by the El Rancho Unified School District (California) to identify and honor graduates of the school district who have graduated more than 15 years ago, who have achieved recognition in their chosen field, and who would bring honor to the school district in its honoring of them. Nominees for the Hall of Fame were sought by contacting alumni groups and the district staff, and by placing articles in newspapers. A screening committee narrowed the field of 32 nominations to 10 candidates. A panel of three prominent citizens selected the final five inductees. These inductees were a noted research chemist, the first woman Hispanic elected to the California State legislature, a woman medical missionary, an Air Force colonel, and a nurse. A Hall of Fame corner was set up in the high school library to provide a permanent place to honor the recipients and to provide inspiration to the students. Included with this program description are three news releases which cover information on the program and include short biographies of the five inductees. This document was selected by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Task Force on Public Confidence as descriptive of a promising practice or exemplary project worthy of highlighting for the California educational community.
