Honorary Diploma Program

Honorary Diploma Program

The Alumni Association is seeking nominations for our Honorary Diploma.  The Silverton High School Honorary Diploma Program is a shared effort between SHS and the SHS Alumni Association to acknowledge community members who have made significant contributions to the SHS activities and students.  Recognition is made by presenting an actual SHS Diploma to the person during the graduation ceremony for the current Senior Class.  The awardee’s biography is read at the ceremony and a copy is inserted into the Graduation Program.  Diplomas are also presented posthumously to recognize significant historical contributors to SHS and their extraordinary Go Foxes Spirit.  If you would like to nominate someone, please submit their name along with their Biography by December 1st for consideration. Biographies for past recipients are included in our newsletter for the year they were honored.
