The event proves to be a very special evening. All those who attend leave the ceremony in awe of not only the inductees’ accomplishments, but their story. Each graduate speaks about their chosen career after leaving Wakefield Memorial High School; but more importantly, how their family, friends, education, school community and the Town of Wakefield that surrounded them during their days at the high school impacted their personal and professional life.
Permanent plaques commemorating each Hall of Fame inductee will be displayed in the Alumni Hall of Fame Corridor at Wakefield Memorial High School.
