Cleveland High School Hall of Fame – “Eagle Legends”

Nomination Period is open now!

Daniel “Jurdy” Jurdy, Cleveland High School Athletic Director, recently approached the Alumni Association and the PTSA to start a Hall of Fame for Cleveland High School. We are one of the only Seattle high schools without a hall of fame. CHS is providing the wall in the school’s entrance to host our “Eagle Legends”.

The goal is to induct people each year who made a significant impact or provided outstanding contributions to their community, Cleveland High School, or Cleveland High School Alumni Association. This includes former students (alumnus) who have graduated at least 10 years previously, staff members, coaches, advisors, or volunteers. This can also include a team or group.

Nominations for this spring’s inductees are due by April 15th.

The Selections Committee will consist of five members for this year’s selection of Hall of Fame (two alumni, two PTSA members, and Jurdy).  Final approval will be provided by CHS Principal Jeff Lam. They will be selecting inductees from a variety of eras, starting when the school opened in 1927 until 2014 for CHS alumni, and up to 2024 for staff, coaches, advisors, and volunteers.

Submit your nominations by filling out the online application. Make sure to submit as much information as possible to help the Selections committee (biography, articles, and more). Click here to nominate someone.

In the future, nominations will be due by January 7th of each year to give the committee plenty of time to review the nominees. Nominations that are submitted and not selected will be put back into the pool for future consideration.  You can submit nominations year-round!
