The Battle Creek Central High School Hall of Fame is honored to induct 18 new members into their group for the 2015-16 year. These members have been selected for their outstanding character and significant contributions through their life’s endeavors. Battle Creek Central’s Hall of Fame has been in existence since the first group in 2004-05. We honor those individuals who have “made a difference” in academics, the arts, or athletics. With this being our 12th year, we have inducted 144 individuals, including this year’s group.
Proceeds from the event fund scholarships for selected graduating seniors from Battle Creek Central High School. This year’s event will be honoring four seniors. We believe education is important and to date we have awarded 25 graduating seniors over $20,000 in scholorship funds.
These are the members of the 2015-16 Class for Battle Creek Central High School Hall of Fame...
