Hall of Honor

Public schools have existed on Galveston Island since 1884. In those 139 years, many notable individuals have walked the halls of Galveston schools, including the 18 individuals highlighted below. These outstanding Ball High School and Central High School graduates have distinctly distinguished themselves as role models within their profession or in their communities and comprise the inaugural class of inductees that will be memorialized in the Galveston Public Schools Hall of Honor.

Detailed information about each Hall of Honor inductee is available in the "Honoree Bios" section on the right-hand side of this page.

The individuals below were honored during the Hall of Honor's first official induction ceremony hosted by Mario's Seawall Italian Restaurant on Jan. 19, 2023.
