Inductees

Northshore graduates are recognized on the Wall of Honor as individuals who built upon the educational foundation they received in the Northshore School District to make unique and lasting contributions in their adult lives. These contributions may take many forms, but what is common are the contributions and achievements serve as a source of inspiration and service to others; that they have enriched communities and enhanced lives at the local, state, or national levels; and may have even had a global impact.  

Northshore staff or volunteers acknowledged on the Wall of Honor are those who left a lasting and far reaching imprint on students or programs that are felt long after they have moved on from their service in the Northshore School District. These are individuals who truly shaped the culture and built the excellence that we know and appreciate across our district.

Recognizing the rich history of outstanding achievements of Northshore School District alumni, staff and volunteers who have made significant contributions to our community, state, nation or world.

A group of alumni from the Northshore School District, spearheaded by Bothell High School graduates George Selg and Al "Speck" Strand, organized a drive to raise money for a "Wall of Honor" to recognize distinguished graduates of Bothell, Inglemoor, North Creek and Woodinville high schools and Secondary Academy for Success (SAS), as well as faculty and staff members throughout the district.

The "Wall of Honor" was unveiled on September 15, 2010. The wall is located at the north end of Pop Keeney Stadium near the new entrance.

“I feel honored to be included among the list of distinguished Wall of Honor recipients. To be recognized for my contributions is a humbling experience and I am grateful for the many opportunities I’ve had to be of service to my community.”

 - Al DeYoung, 2011 inductee

"I am incredibly proud to be an inductee to the Wall of Honor. I appreciate that the wall is a celebration of what we have been able to give back to the community over the course of our careers. It is so satisfying to be recognized for my theatre and teaching contributions from the very school district that taught me so much." 

 - David A. Miller, 2011 inductee

“The Wall of Honor will continue to recognize many who have made a difference. Alumni and staff will be honored by their achievements. We are inspired by how many individuals have been successful, recognized, and acknowledged.” 

 - Allen Haynes, 2011 inductee
