Raytown Schools AlumniHall of Fame
Who operates the program?The program was developed by a planning committee of representatives from the school district, Raytown Chamber of Commerce, PTA, the Raytown Retired Teachers and School Personnel Association and the Raytown Educational Foundation. The committee is now led by Sara Stewart, Retired District Activities Director, and Cathy Allie, Coordinator of Community Relations.
How are the inductees selected?Honorees will be selected by a committee through a nomination process. Candidates must be at least 30 years of age at the application deadline. Nominees may be living or deceased. The deadline for the nominations is February 1, 2011 for the class of 2012. A complete nomination form is required for consideration.
A sub-committee of the planning committee uses a matrix to determine the list of winners.
“We really want this to be a first-class program that honors alumni for outstanding accomplishments,” said Stewart. “We are looking for candidates who have gone out in the world and made a monumental difference. We know there are several alumni who are accomplished entertainers, scientists, inventors, writers, athletes, business people and so on. We want to find them and share their story.”Above, Class of 2012 member Tony Lowe looks at old yearbook photos during the Raytown Historical Society morning program.

The honorees are showcased in four displays that were donated by Shamrock Cabinets. One of these displays will be in each high school; one will be at the administration building; and one is housed the Raytown Schools Education and Conference Center.
How big are the classes?To emphasize the importance of the program, the inaugural class included twelve honorees. The committee has since limited the size of additional classes.
