“Seneca High School has been educating scholars since 1957. In that time, thousands of young men and women have distinguished themselves not only in academics and athletics, but also as invaluable and superior contributors to our society, community and the world,” said Seneca Principal Kim Morales.  “The committee hopes that these distinguished alumni will serve as a guiding light to current and future scholars who can see those who have gone before them and perhaps serve as role models.” 

Inductees are invited to the Hall of Fame Celebration Weekend, Oct. 21 and 22. Activities will include the Wall of Fame unveiling; a tour of the building; a chance to meet and speak to current scholars; formal banquet; and recognition at the Homecoming pep rally and football game.
