Hall of Honor

Public schools have existed on Galveston Island since 1884. Many notable individuals have walked the halls in those 138 years, and soon, those who have distinguished themselves as role models within their profession or in their communities at large will be memorialized in the Galveston Public Schools Hall of Honor. The inaugural class of around 20 inductees will be announced in the spring of 2022 and a handful of carefully selected candidates will be inducted every year thereafter.

Learn more about the Galveston Public Schools Hall of Honor and submit your nominations today at https://www.gisd.org/community/hallofhonor.
