Butler H.S. looking for new Hall of Honor inductees

September 21, 2017 by  

Once again, Butler High School is on the lookout for a few additions to its Hall of Honor.

Starting a few years ago, and now taking place every other year, Butler H.S. began recognizing graduates with induction into its Hall of Honor. According to school officials, September 2018 is when the next group will be added, and up until January 2, 2018, nominees for that initiation will be accepted.

Only students from the towns of Butler and Bloomingdale currently send students to Butler High School. However, at one time any mailing services needed by the school extended to households in large parts of Morris County and portions of Sussen County, as well as north-western Passaic County.

The Hall’s oldest inductee is from the class of 1939, which means from the high school’s first class of 1906 up to that of 1939, the Hall of Honor is devoid of inductees. Martin Wall, the current curriculum director and a former high school principal, explains that the Hall of Honor is particularly interested in nominees from those earlier classes.

Established to recognize extraordinary life accomplishments, the Hall of Honor inductees have their names engraved on the Butler Hall of Fame statue in the high school’s courtyard garden. Additionally, honorees are also presented with their very own miniaturized version of the statue.
