The Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame was developed to recognize and honor Napoleon High School Alumni (individuals who attended a Napoleon school at some time), which may include individuals from pre-consolidation schools, who have achieved significant success in their chosen career fields, and to provide outstanding role models for the students of the Napoleon Area City School District.
The Napoleon Alumni Association appoints a standing committee for the purpose of reviewing nominations and ultimately selecting alumni who have, not only achieved significant success in their chosen career fields, but who have also demonstrated good citizenship and meritorious service throughout their life. This committee relies on alumni and community members for nominations to keep this new tradition growing.
A commemorative plaque honoring the chosen individuals is displayed on the NHS cafeteria wall. This is to serve as a constant reminder to Napoleon High School students and guests, present and future, of their accomplishments, and what a Napoleon student is capable of aspiring to.
