The Lakewood Rangers Education Foundation supports and administers a hall of fame honoring three distinct categories of graduates and staff of the Lakewood City Schools. The Hall of Fame was established to recognize those who, through participation, service or lifetime achievements have helped bring recognition, honor, distinction and excellence to the Lakewood City Schools. Individuals are inducted into the Hall of Fame for their accomplishments in athletics, service as faculty or staff, or by distinguishing themselves as successful adults in their chosen careers and/or serving as benefactors in their local communities, state or the world.


After many years of holding our Hall of Fame inductions in the Fall, we are moving to the Spring! The next Lakewood Hall of Fame will take place in April 2020! Get your nominations in!


Nominations forms for Distinguished, Athletic and Staff Hall of Fame Honorees are being accepted On a rolling basis throughout the YEar. Nominations submitted by OCTOBER 1, 2019, will be reviewed by the Hall Of Fame Committees for induction in the Spring.

Submit completed forms to the Lakewood Rangers Education Foundation, 14100 Franklin Blvd. Lakewood, OH 44107 or via email to terri.richards@lakewoodcityschools.org

The Lakewood Rangers Education Foundation Board of Trustees appoints a Hall of Fame Steering Committee comprised of Foundation trustees and Hall of Fame members. A subcommittee is formed for each Hall of Fame, is chaired by a board member and is comprised of both alumni and current or former Lakewood City Schools’ staff members. 

When submitting an nomination, please include as much information as possible on your nominee. Supporting letters and information from others is also permitted and added to the nominee’s file as it is received.


While the brass plaques honoring prior Hall of Fame Honorees remain for visitors to LHS to view, we are pleased to announce that the Hall of Fame space at LHS, located between the LHS gymnasium and dining hall, features a new web-based display. This new approach to the Hall of Fame was conceived to facilitate greater access to the Lakewood Hall of Fame by alumni, our community and friends of the Lakewood City Schools, from wherever where they are in the world. It was funded through a partnership between the Lakewood Rangers Education Foundation and the Administration of the Lakewood City Schools, with special thanks to Mr. Jeffrey Patterson and Mr. Keith Ahearn.
