We discovered a major database crash this morning on the server. Almost everything has been recovered and the web site is back up and running but it appears we may have completely lost some of the recent entries to our In Memoriam pages. If you notice any missing ones, please send me the relevant details and I'll put them back in. Thanks!

YORKTOWN HIGH SCHOOL

HALL OF FAME AND INSPIRATION

The Hall of Fame and Inspiration was created in 2004 and includes such notable alumni as broadcaster Katie Couric (class of ’75), Google CEO Eric Schmidt (’72), Olympic swimmer Tom Dolan (’93), the late astronaut David Brown (’74) and Hilton Hotels CEO Chris Nassetta (’80).

      The addition of nine in 2022 brings the total inductees to 44, after rounds of inductions in 2004, 2008, 2014 and 2018.

      An inductee can be an achiever in any field of endeavor that brings credit to the school. He or she can be famous nationally or locally, living or deceased, and should be inspiring to the high school-age students who will walk by their plaques every day.

Future Nominations

The selections of distinguished alumni are made by a committee of alumni, a former teacher and a student member. Nominations are solicited from former students and the community via local news outlets and the website Yorktownalums.org seeking suggestions based on the following criteria: “alumni (including faculty and staff) who went on to become well known for achievement in any area of endeavor that brings credit to the school and whose story is compelling and inspiring.” The committee then votes on finalists. Nominations for the next round of inductions can be submitted by email to Charlie Clark.
