Hall of Honor: Consistent with its commitment to excellence, LaSalle-Peru Township High School District 120 administration is recommending the Board’s approval to initiate a Hall of Honor. The focus of the Hall of Honor is to recognize excellence in achievement, be it academic, artistic, athletic, or general distinguished achievement while a high school student, after leaving high school, or a combination of both. Furthermore, honorees may have attended LPHS, or may have never attended LPHS but were significant and accomplished contributors that have been associated with the school.
Purpose: The purpose of the Hall of Honor is to highlight the accomplishments of inductees with the intention that current students will be inspired by the standard of excellence and accomplishment achieved by their predecessors.

Nominations: Nominations may be submitted by any source, but all will be submitted to the Athletic and Activities Director, thereafter to be directed to the selection committee. Once a nomination has been made that nomination will remain for consideration each year by the selection committee.
Process: The selection committee shall review and select, on an annual basis, nominations for inductions submitted to the Athletic and Activities Director. Selections shall be no more than ten (10) in a calendar year. All members on the committee shall vote, with a simple majority of the selection committee sufficient to award induction.
