Danville Community Consolidated School District No. 118 Press Release

Danville High School has recognized outstanding alumni since 1991 through annual inductions into the DHS Wall of Fame.  The purposes of the DHS Wall of Fame include:

  • To promote pride in the Danville Public Schools
  • To promote pride in Danville
  • To provide positive role models for students

Danville High School students are exposed to the Wall of Fame on a daily basis.  Inductees’ framed biographies and photographs are hung prominently outside the auditorium in the office lobby at DHS.  Community members also become familiar with our alumni success stories when they visit the high school.

Any individual may nominate a candidate for the DHS Wall of Fame. Candidates are preferably graduates of Danville High School or have attended DHS for at least one year.

An independent community committee will review the nominations and select the inductees for 2017.  All nominations are due to the Office of the Superintendent, 110 E. Williams St., Danville, IL 61832 by Friday, September 1.  A nomination form is attached. Three references must be provided for a candidate to be considered.  Forms are also available on the front page of the District’s website at www.danville118.org

 It is expected that inductees have demonstrated achievement or service above and beyond the responsibilities of their normal employment.


  • Inductees who no longer live in the local community must have distinguished themselves with excellence nationally, internationally, or within a particular field or service to humanity.


  • Inductees who have remained in the area must have distinguished themselves with excellence locally or regionally within a particular field or with service to humanity or have been actively involved in local community service.  This category may include a nominee who achieved locally but later moved away.

Currently, 54 honored DHS alumni are enshrined in the Danville High School Wall of Fame.  Inductees include Congressional Medal of Honor, Academy Award, Emmy Award, and Tony Award recipients as well as public servants, doctors, teachers, community activists, and authors.  Your assistance in publicizing our 2017 DHS Wall of Fame nomination process is appreciated.  If you have any questions, please contact the Superintendent’s office at 444-1004.
