Hall of Fame



Yorktown High School’s Hall of Fame and Inspiration is soliciting nominations for the fourth round of inductions, with a deadline of Aug. 1. Nominations and explanatory material can be sent to Yorktown High School Hall of Fame, c/o Student Activities, Yorktown High School, 5200 Yorktown Blvd., Arlington, Va. 22207, or e-mailed to Sara Jane Knight at

On January 25, 2014 in a ceremony at the school, Yorktown High School alumni inducted a third round of notable graduates to its Hall of Fame and Inspiration.

An inductee can be an achiever in any field of endeavor that brings credit to the school. He or she can be famous nationally or locally, living or deceased, and should be inspiring to the high school-age students who will walk by their plaques every day.

Previous inductees, a total of 19 of whom were inducted in 2004 and 2008, include TV personality Katie Couric, the late astronaut David Brown, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt and TV producer Greg Garcia.
