The Fenton High School Alumni Wall of Fame was established on April 18, 1996 as part of the school's 40th anniversary celebration. The District 100 Board of Education established the Wall to honor the achievements and contributions of the school's outstanding alumni, while also positioning them as role models for current Fenton students.
In the years to follow, graduates of Bensenville Community High School were also included for induction into the Wall of Fame. To date, thirty-six Fenton High School and Bensenville Community High School graduates have been inducted into the Wall of Fame. Anyone may nominate a graduate who they feel is worthy of induction to the Wall of Fame.
Once nominated, a graduate remains on the nominee list until the time he or she is selected for the biennial induction. A selection committee, comprised of teachers, administrators, students, alumni, and community members, carefully review the nominations and selects up to four graduates for each induction year.
The criteria for inductees include: Graduated from Fenton High School prior to the 2002-2003 school year or from Bensenville Community High School. Has demonstrated a high level of achievement in his/her field and has made significant contributions to that field. Exhibits leadership, character and service in his/her profession or community.
Nominations for 2015 are now being accepted. The deadline to submit a nomination is October 31.
