Hall of Fame

The Voorhees College Hall of Fame aims to recognize and honor Voorhees College graduates and other individuals who have made significant contributions to the college or society. We are no longer accepting nominations for the 2014 Hall of Fame.


Qualifications

Nominees must be alumni or supporters of Voorhees College, Voorhees Junior College, Voorhees High School or Voorhees Industrial School. Nominees are sought each year in athletics, arts and entertainment, business, education, government and law, the military, religion and science.

The honorees are presented with an award and a portrait is placed on the Wall of Fame Gallery housed in Massachusetts Hall.
