NHS and Wall of Distinction Ceremony

The Hudson Falls Central School District in conjunction with the Sandy Hill Chapter of the National Honor Society Induction will hold its twenty-first annual Wall of Distinction Induction on Sunday, November 5, 2023 at 1:00 PM in the High School Auditorium. Honoring student achievement is a highlight of every educator and welcoming new NHS and Wall of Distinction members is a testament to student success both past and present.

The Wall of Distinction’s intent is to establish a tradition that honors highly successful graduates who have gone on to distinguished careers in various fields or who have become role models in the community. The Wall also demonstrates to students and the community the caliber of students produced by the Hudson Falls School District. The Wall of Distinction provides inspiration and motivation for students to excel.

Wall of Distinction inductees for 2023 include:

  • Andrew Bigelow, ’02, Army Lieutenant Colonel 
  • Samuel Ratti Robinson, ’06, School Administrator
  • Theresa A. (Pratt) Ibbotson, ’73, Teacher
  • Daniel Giroux, ’83, Certified Memorialist
  • William Collins ’59, Business Owner
  • Kathy Marie Bruno-Dudley (posthumously), ’84, Secretary
