ABOUT US 

The purpose of this non-profit organization shall be to recognize and to honor those persons who, through their performances and achievements, reflect credit on Rolling Hills Schools so that present-day students can identify with the past and establish goals for the future. An honoree must be a  graduate of the Rolling Hills Schools (Buffalo High School, Byesville High School, Community High School, Cumberland High School, Lore City High School, Meadowbrook High School, Pleasant City High School,, Senecaville High School). The recipient shall be chosen based on the following criteria: outstanding achievement in vocational pursuits; contributions made to the community or government; significant philanthropic involvement; achievements while a student at the Rolling Hills Schools; or other criteria brought before the board.

The Hall of Fame Board of Directors will plan an induction dinner ceremony at which time each inductee will receive a plaque with their picture and a short summary of his/her major accomplishments. A copy of the plaque shall be placed in a prominent location in the Hall of Fame at Meadowbrook High School. A news release of this information will appear in the newspaper and on the Rolling Hills Hall of Fame page on the school’s website.

The Hall of Fame was instituted in 1996 by former student, teacher, principal, and assistant superintendent, Mr. Charles E. Chippi. Fifty-eight (58) inductees line the walls of Meadowbrook High School with the last induction in 2018 listing five new members.
