The Hall of Fame volunteer committee would like to thank the public for its nominations of graduates and staff of Royal Oak’s public schools--including Royal Oak, Dondero and Kimball high schools.  The committee spends many months over three rounds of voting and bases its decision-making on data submitted by the public.  

Any nominees not inducted this year remain eligible for three total rounds.  Nominators are welcome to submit new nominees or further information on previous nominees via the links at the top of this page.
