Williamsville High School has had a Tradition of Excellence in both academics and athletics since its inception in 1889. We have celebrated this tradition and the accomplishments of the students and staff of WHS in many ways over the years. Beginning this school year, we will have one more way to celebrate as well.
We are pleased to announce the creation of the Williamsville Hall of Fame beginning this school year. This joint effort between Williamsville High School and the Williamsville Sports Boosters aims to recognize the past achievements of individuals, teams, activities, clubs, and organizations that have excelled and left a lasting impact during their time at WHS.
Nominations will be open starting today (August 23, 2019), and can be submitted until 11:59 pm on Tuesday, December 31, 2019. The inaugural Hall of Fame class will be announced early in 2020 and will be recognized at a banquet and ceremony in the Spring of 2020. Individuals, teams, activities, clubs, or organizations who meet the following criteria can be nominated for the Class of 2020:
