Submissions are now open for the Peoria Public Schools Hall of Achievement!

We are asking the community's input on an exciting new initiative at Peoria Public Schools: the creation of a district Hall of Achievement!

Chartered in the 1860s, there are tens of thousands of Peoria Public Schools alumni and so many of them have used their time in our school district as a first step to significant achievements at the local, state, national and international level. We believe these outstanding alumni need to be recognized for these accomplishments!

Peoria Public Schools invites nominations for candidates for the inaugural class of the newly formed PPS Hall of Achievement. This distinguished recognition honors individuals whose deeds and character exemplify outstanding achievement in their life’s work and/or service to their communities at the local, state, national or international levels. The honoree’s spirit and leadership are worthy of recognition and have inspired praise and gratitude among their peers.
