Welcome the Hall of Fame!

Congratulations to Our Hall of Fame Members!


The Venice High School Alumni Association held its 2nd Annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony this month. The ceremony took place on Friday October 19, 2018 at homecoming. Venice High School with its rich heritage, has had numerous graduates of notoriety. The Hall of Fame festivities will begin with a reception on campus with the Homecoming Court, and Honorees. At halftime the installation ceremony will take place on the field where the inductees will be officially introduced to the community. Afterward the recipients will be given a tour of the administration building hallway, where their Hall of Fame plaques will be prominently displayed.

This momentous 2nd Annual Venice High School Hall of Fame induction was highly anticipated, and the community was excited to welcome Alumni back on campus to properly honor the inductees for their accomplishments. Save the date and plan to be part of this historic event!

Here are the names of those presently in the Venice High School Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame criteria and application forms can be downloaded by clicking on the buttons below.
