The Hall of Fame was established as part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration in November 2003. The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to bring acclaim to WakefieldHigh School. The intent of the Hall of Fame is to recognize those alumni and staff who have made significant contributions to society and who have brought acclaim or recognition to Wakefield. Those selected for the Hall of Fame should have a widespread reputation, at least in their peer group. The renown of the Hall of Fame member will be associated with, and therefore a reflection on, WakefieldHigh School. They should also serve as both a model and a source of pride to current students.
