Wall of Honor Pre 060619 fix resized.jpg

For many of us, La Follette brings back great memories and a lasting appreciation for the positive impact on our life. Whether it was a teacher, principal, coach or friend many people made our time at La Follette special. With this in mind, a Wall of Honor was built in recognition of La Follette’s 50th Anniversary and provide an opportunity to recognize those that made our time at La Follette so special.  Though we are well past La Follette's 50th anniversary the Wall of Honor is still being used to recognize special Lancers.  You can be part of this by nominating and voting with your donations for those noteworthy La Follette Lancers.


How it works:

  1. Make a nomination with a gift.

  2. Once a person reaches $500 in gifts they will become a "Lancer Wall of Honor" nominee. All nominees who receive at least $5,000 in gifts will be placed on the Wall of Honor. The Wall of Honor is on the south brick wall in the commons area of La Follette.

The donations for Wall of Honor nominees may be made to any fund that has been set up for La Follette.  The funds for La Follette are described here.  When making the donation be sure to include in the comment section that the gift is for a Wall of Honor nominee.
