TEACHERS' HALL OF FAME

The Teachers' Hall of Fame was conceived to express “grateful appreciation for outstanding service as a teacher whose professional capability, integrity, and sympathetic understanding inspired the admiration, respect, and loyalty of students and associates, and whose wisdom and foresight left a lasting influence on the Whitesboro Central School System.”  The first teacher was inducted in 1968, making us the first in the United States to commemorate such service by this profession.  A physical reminder of our place in history stands in the front circle of the Senior High School in Marcy.  Have you ever wondered about all those bronze plaques on the wall outside the high school cafeteria?  As of May 2015 there have been a total of 50 recipients.  These inductees became eligible based on years of exceptional service to their school, students, and community.

Candidates are eligible for induction based on, but not limited to, the criteria listed below:

-  A minimum of 20 years of service in the Whitesboro Central School District.  The candidate may be actively employed or retired from the Whitesboro School system

-  The candidate must have contributed to the school, students, and community and have demonstrated a positive impact on the same.

At the discretion of the Whitesboro Alumni Board of Directors, any teacher living or deceased may be considered for the Teachers Hall of Fame for any justifiable reason, regardless of years of service.
