Liberty Central School District Wall of Fame 

tabs box bottom border

The Liberty Central School District Wall of Fame provides a wonderful opportunity to honor and celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of the graduates of the school district and the daughters and sons of our community.

The distinguished alumni named to the Wall of Fame represent an extraordinary range of personal and professional achievements. It is our hope that such recognition will inspire current students to their own achievement, both in high school and beyond.

As a school district that continually strives to instill in its students the concepts of achievement and excellence, the Wall of Fame inductees serve as exceptional role models. Their personal accomplishments, either to their individual fields of endeavor or to the broader community, exemplify what our students may attain through initiative and commitment.

We are pleased to honor these inductees, to celebrate their successes and to have them reunited with the Liberty Central School District. The inductees are invited to a reception and induction ceremony just prior to graduation commencement and will be introduced during the commencement ceremony. In addition, a plaque for each inductee is displayed in the high school auditorium lobby.
