Inductees were chosen from a field of nominees submitted earlier this year by alumni, faculty and staff, and the community at large.
“The inaugural class of the VHCS Hall of Fame is the gold standard for educators,” said Dr. Todd Freeman, Vestavia Hills City Schools superintendent.
“Each individual member touched the lives of countless students and colleagues. Their legacies of influence continue to impact past, present, and future students. They exemplify what it means to be committed to providing every student the opportunity to learn without limits,” Freeman said.
The inductees will be recognized on Monday, Oct. 5, during the Vestavia Hills City Schools 50th anniversary celebration at Louis Pizitz Middle School. The ceremony will also mark the grand opening of the new Pizitz campus. Student ambassadors will conduct campus tours beginning at 5:30 that evening, followed by the 50th anniversary ceremony at 6:30 p.m. in the school’s new gymnasium.
