Do you know someone who is deserving of recognition in the PVSD Hall of Fame? Please consider submitting a candidate for consideration through our online form by April 1, 2020, for consideration in October 2020.

The Perkiomen Valley School District Hall of Fame was established in 2018 to recognize distinguished alumni or others whose outstanding athletic, professional, or civic endeavors have brought honor to the district and inspire future graduates to perform and serve in the same spirit. If you are submitting a nomination, please be sure to provide as much detail as possible to support your nomination. Lack of sufficient information may lead to your candidate being removed from consideration.

Hall of Fame criteria include:
  • Nominee has displayed exemplary achievement in the areas of athletics, citizenship, community/military service, academic and/or professional achievements post-graduation.
  • Nominee has earned recognition, honors and awards post-graduation.
  • Nominees do not have to be PVHS graduates, but if they are, they must be out of high school five years or more to be considered as a candidate. A PV graduate is defined as someone who graduated from Perkiomen Valley High School following the incorporation of the school district in 1969.

The district is beginning a capital campaign to improve student experiences and level the playing field called "Rally for the Valley." The intent is to raise money to offset costs for proposed athletic field improvement projects, such as the installation of synthetic turf at Thomas J. Keenan Stadium, construction of a synthetic turf multi-purpose field at the site of our current baseball field, and construction of two, multi-purpose synthetic turf fields behind the high school.
