Upper Arlington High School
Educators Hall of Fame, 2017
All of us can remember high school educators or staff members who
touched us in some way. It might have been through the wisdom they
shared, the challenges they provided, the knowledge and passion they
had for teaching or the genuine care they exhibited. No matter how they
connected with us, our thoughts about them still evoke warm feelings
for them and for our high school years.
We wish to honor these dedicated professionals by nominating them for
recognition in the Upper Arlington High School Hall of Fame. Every
other year we will recognize these special people through induction
into the Hall.
Each inductee will have an area of the high school named in his or her
honor, and a bronze plaque will be placed in that area to commemorate
that educator’s commitment and achievements.
Former Hall of Fame Inductees include: Dr. James Allen, Shirley Behnke,
Robert Ginther, Jean Guddat, Walter Heischman, Lester Jackson, Richard
Larkin, Ellis Lutz, Marv Morehead, Vera K. Randall, David Shelby, Pat
Stewart, Phil Wagner and Charles Will.

* During their tenure they made a significant difference in students’
