About The Hall Of Fame

The Grand Haven Schools Foundation established the GHHS Hall of Fame in 2008. The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to honor GHHS graduates and those who have served our school district. As a community, we celebrate the success achieved by our Hall of Fame inductees and focus on creating the next generation of achievers, beginning with quality early childhood education. GHSF began raising funds in 2004 for preschool scholarships, and the Hall of Fame serves as a major source of funding for this mission.

Please visit our gallery to view photos from the most recent Hall of Fame event, and consider nominating someone you know for the next Hall of Fame!

The next Hall of Fame event will take place on Saturday, November 9, 2019 at the Spring Lake Country Club.
