Call for Nominations: Shorewood's "Tradition of Excellence Award"

Since opening its doors in 1925, Shorewood High School has been engaged in the serious business of preparing students for life-long learning and for personal and professional achievement. Though it would be impossible to honor all of the achievements and contributions of the 11,000 students who have graduated from Shorewood, the District honors a limited number each year in the "Tradition of Excellence Awards" program. In recognizing these select few, the Shorewood School District celebrates their outstanding individual achievements which symbolically honors the collective contributions of the many Shorewood graduates who make an impact on their community.

Established in the year 2000, the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Village of Shorewood, the Tradition of Excellence Awards are bestowed upon those who have distinguished themselves in community and public service; science, engineering, and technology; medicine and public health; the arts and humanities; business; government and political service; education; military service; philanthropy; and other professions committed to serving others. In order to be eligible, candidates must be graduates of Shorewood School High School or former faculty of Shorewood School District.

Award recipients are invited to the Shorewood High School campus for a special ceremony, where they are honored by the Shorewood School community with a special day of activities, opportunities to engage with students, an honorary plaque, and permanent recognition through our Tradition of Excellence Awards display. Awardees are selected by the Tradition of Excellence Awards Planning Committee. Past honorees can be seen here.

The "Tradition of Excellence Awards" were originally envisioned by the Shorewood "Silver Greyhounds" and are supported by the Tradition of Excellence Planning Committee.

Anyone who wishes to nominate a candidate for current or future Tradition of Excellence Award recognition should complete the online form here.

For more information about the program, including opportunities to support the "Tradition of Excellence Awards" program through a tax-deductible donation, contact Ted Knight
