Wall of Achievement
In 1996, the Natick High School administration established a Wall of Achievement to honor alumni for their exceptional achievements and contributions to society, and to invite them back to campus to share their experiences and insights with current students. This program is designed to illustrate to our students the importance of setting high educational and personal goals. After spending a day in the classroom with students, the inductees are honored and inducted during a dinner held at the high school the same evening.
This event is held every November on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
To be eligible for nomination, alumni must have:
- Graduated from Natick High School at least ten years ago.
- Demonstrated a high level of achievement and made significant contributions to work, home, community or volunteer efforts.
- Exhibited integrity, character, service and commitment.
