Wall of Fame

October 25, 2021

We look forward to inducting the 2021 Wall of Fame Humanitarian Award honorees at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City on Monday, October 25th. The 2021 honorees will be joining 92 other Oklahoma City Public Schools alumni and community leaders who have been inducted into the Wall of Fame since its creation in 1985. This will mark the 37th anniversary of celebrating OKCPS alumni who have made significant contributions to our world in countless ways.

The Wall of Fame Humanitarian Awards is one of our favorite nights of the year, because it celebrates the long, rich history of OKCPS, including alumni who are among the nation’s most influential leaders in a wide variety of fields.

We are currently seeking sponsors for this year’s event. Your support will help us continue our focused work that serves both short- and long-term needs within the district. In doing so you will not only honor these outstanding individuals, but you will support our efforts to create community ownership in the success of every child. Our students’ and schools’ needs are as significant as they’ve ever been, and we are continuing our work to advance excellence, create champions and build strong community support for lasting change in our schools. Most importantly, your sponsorship will support The Foundation in providing life-changing opportunities for Oklahoma City Public Schools children, encouraging each one to reach his or her potential. Please fill out the sponsorship form below or contact [email protected] for more information.
