The plaque for each honoree, recognizing his/her personal and professional post high school graduation achievements and featuring a current photo, as well as a graduation photo, will be permanently mounted in June on the Distinguished Alumni Wall of Honor located in Northampton High School’s main lobby. The Distinguished inductees honored on the Wall serve as an inspiration to all students and as a reminder to the entire community of Northampton Area School District’s proud education tradition and commitment to serve others.
