The purpose of the MCHS Hall of Distinction is to honor and celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of the former students of Morris Community High School and the daughters and sons of our community.
The distinguished students/alumni named to the Hall of Distinction represent an extraordinary range of personal and professional achievements. It is our hope that such recognition will inspire current students to their own achievement, both in high school and beyond.
As a school district that continually strives to instill in its students the concepts of achievement and excellence, the Hall of Distinction inductees serve as exceptional role models. Their personal accomplishments, either to their individual fields of endeavor or to the broader community, exemplify what our students may attain through initiative and commitment.
