St. Peter’s Boys High School Inaugural Hall of Fame

 An Honor of a Lifetime

St. Peter’s Boys High School is pleased to announce the debut of the St. Peter’s Hall of Fame event. The inaugural class of inductees will be honored during an exclusive ceremony on October 18, 2019, at the stunning Above venue at the Hilton Garden Inn on Staten Island. Appropriately deemed “An Evening for Our Honored Eagles,” guests will be introduced to the outstanding individuals who have been nominated and selected by St. Peter’s for demonstrating a level of leadership and ambassadorship toward the school worthy of acknowledgment for generations to come.

Nominations are now open for alumni, friends and St. Peter’s community members to present those worthy of this esteemed award. Please see the nomination criteria below and complete the online application or mail an application to the school if you have someone in mind.

We look forward to sharing in this celebration together!

Guidelines

The purpose of the St. Peter’s Boys High School Hall of Fame is to formally recognize alumni, Catholic leaders, parents, teachers, administrators and friends that help define and advance the mission of the school. Each year, the president of the school will lead a committee of senior administrators seeking nominations for two prestigious awards: Hall of Fame and Honorary Alumni. At St. Peter’s, we are blessed with a great many alumni and friends who have and continue to live their lives in the true Lasallian spirit, and the example they set is a model for others to follow. We welcome nominations and look forward to honoring the recipients during our first-class event.
