Distinguished Alumni

The Barbers Hill Distinguished Alumni and Honorary Eagle program was begun in 2009 to recognize former students and individuals who have made a lasting contribution to the district, the community, and society as a whole. 

Each year, a Distinguished Alumnus and an Honorary Eagle are selected based upon character traits of leadership and service, with the nominee’s personal and professional successes being an additional factor considered.  Examples include: 

  •         Active participation in community, state, or national activities
  •         Evidence of a lasting contribution to an organization, business, or society in general
  •         Exhibited leadership ability
  •         Distinction in personal and professional life
  •         Distinguished Alumni candidates must be a graduate from Barbers Hill Classes 1929 - 1990.

An Honorary Eagle is someone who is not a Barbers Hill graduate but who has had a lasting and profound effect on Barbers Hill, its students, and its community through involvement, leadership and support.
