Johnson City Schools to welcome inaugural Hall of Fame class in 2019


As Johnson City moves toward its 150th birthday and Science Hill High School moves past its sesquicentennial – its first classes were held on August 24, 1868 as Science Hill Male & Female Institute – Johnson City Schools is happy to announce the creation of the Johnson City Schools Hall of Fame.

The goal of the Johnson City Schools Hall of Fame is to recognize and honor those educators, alumni and contributors who have made significant impacts in progressing Johnson City Schools.

“We wanted to start the Johnson City Schools Hall of Fame as a way to celebrate the contributions of those that came before us,” Johnson City Schools Superintendent Dr. Steve Barnett said. “Johnson City and Johnson City Schools have such a rich history of great people that helped establish the foundation for the school system we are today.”

Nomination forms can be found at JCschools.org and the deadline for nominations will be June 1, 2019. The inaugural class will consist of up to 20 members, with the following classes consisting of up to nine members. The inaugural enshrinement will be held at the Science Hill auditorium on August 24, 2019.

To be eligible for the Johnson City Schools Hall of Fame, a person must have been employed with Johnson City Schools for 10 years, be a graduate of Johnson City Schools or a contributor to the school system for at least 10 years. 

Those nominees will be broken down into three categories that will align with their retirement/graduation year. Those categories coincide with different eras for the district, including Legacy (Retired/Graduated Pre-1970), Tradition (Retired/Graduated 1971-2000) and Modern (Retired 2001-Present).
