Distinguished Alumni

The Education Foundation of Hudson honors past graduates of the Hudson School District with the Distinguished Alumni Award. The purpose of the Hudson High School Distinguished Alumni Award is to provide inspirational role models for students, to provide recognition for past graduates, and to promote a legacy of community pride.

The Alumni Wall of Fame has been established in the EFH Room at Hudson High School. Plaques commemorating the Alumni who receive the Distinguished Alumni Award will be displayed there for students, parents and community members to view.
