Hall of Fame

Each year, Archbishop Williams High School dedicates a day to celebrating excellence within our community.  At our Hall of Fame ceremony, we induct alumni into the Hall of Fame who have demonstrated excellence in academics and athletics. Those inductees are also recognized at our Blue and Gold Gala later that night.
