The Hall of Fame was established in 2012-13 to recognize and honor the accomplishments of Rensselaer City School District (RCSD) attendees, RCSD faculty and administration, and parent volunteers. Honorees are selected who bring pride and inspiration to the RCSD, the community and society as a whole. They exemplify the tradition of excellence fostered by the RCSD and reinforce to current students the importance of a sound educational foundation.
Inductees are selected by a committee, in accordance with adopted nomination policies. Honorees are selected for excellence and achievement through demonstrated accomplishment, leadership, or character. Nomination categories include: 1) profession, trade, business and industry; 2) community service; 3) cultural endeavor such as art, music, dance, theater or literature, and 4) charitable contribution on the local, state, national or international level.
