The Henderson County Education Foundation is now seeking nominations for the 2019 Education Hall of Fame. Nominations of candidates for inclusion in the 2019 Education Hall of Fame class and required supporting materials must be submitted to the Foundation by November 30, 2018.

Since 2003, the Henderson County Education Foundation has honored over 120 teachers, administrators, support staff, school board members, and donors with induction into the Hall.  One of only five education halls of fame in North Carolina, the HCEF Hall of Fame provides an opportunity for special recognition of the men and women who have led Henderson County’s focus on educational excellence for decades.

As Hall of Fame records indicate, honorees have shown “measurable influence or made significant contributions to the growth and development of education in Henderson County.”  Members of the Hall are honored in a display at the Central Office of the Henderson County Public Schools (HCPS) located at 414 4th Avenue West.  The “Wall of Fame” is open to the public during HCPS business hours.

Detailed guidelines for nominations and selection criteria can be found at You can also contact the Foundation for questions regarding nominations at 828.697.5551. Those selected for induction into the 2019 Class will be announced in February 2019 and honored at the 2019 Education Celebration, scheduled for Tuesday evening, April 30, 2019 at Jeter Mountain Farms.
