What a Night!
2022 Hall of Fame Ceremony Officially Inducts New Members
It was a beautiful evening in Lakewood to induct Mr. Mark Farrell, Mrs. Libby Kinsey, Mr. Doug Schmuck, and Mrs. Sheila Veitch into the Lakewood Hall of Fame. Surrounded by community, friends, and family, the crowd provided a welcomed return to the induction ceremony which had been postponed since 2020 due to the pandemic. Hugs, laughter, tears, and memories made for a truly meaningful event to honor former graduates and staff members who have made an exceptional contribution to society, achieved exceptional success, brought honor and prestige to Lakewood Public Schools, and have exhibited such qualities of character and action as to be outstanding role models for our students. Community spirit and sentiments were shared by everyone who came out to recognize our inductees who paved the way for students today. Dr. Skalka, Superintendent, recited a proclamation for each inductee and presented them with a plaque, as well as an official shield that is permanently displayed in our high school atrium. We are grateful to all who made the event possible including the Hall of Fame committee, the Board of Education, those submitting nominations, and our food service and maintenance teams. Please join us in congratulating each of these inductees whose careers and service reflect the hallmarks of extraordinary educators.
