Over the past 11 years, the Haddonfield Alumni Society has honored 87 former students and 32 teachers from the Haddonfield Public Schools system by bestowing a Lifetime Achievement Award upon each of them. The criteria for an individual to be considered for the award requires that he/she:
1) Other than a teacher candidate, must have attended one of Haddonfield’s Public Schools, but not necessarily have graduated from HMHS.
2) Has been out of Haddonfield schools, as a student, for at least 20 years.
3) Has distinguished him/herself during the course of their adult lives.
4) If a teacher, must have taught within the Haddonfield Public Schools for at least 7 years.
There is an abundance of worthy alumni and teachers. If you know of someone that you deem to be worthy of this award, speak-up. Make a commitment to “give back” to the people who deserve it, to your school and to your community.
The deadline for submitting the names of nominees to be considered to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award is Aug. 31. Send your submissions and list your reasons for recommending those individuals, to: Tom Baird, 70 Lane of Acres, Haddonfield, N.J. 08033.
There is a Recommendation Form the HAS prefer that you use for this process. The form is available at h-a-s.org/LAA_form.htm.
