Alumni Hall of Fame

The Alumni Hall of Fame is a distinguished award created to recognize and honor outstanding graduates or attendees of Albertville High School who have excelled in their profession and/or made significant contributions in their community. Inductees from each year are featured on the AHS Hall of Fame located in Albertville High School. Each year, AHS students have the opportunity to listen to the biography and accomplishments of that year’s inductees in a program held in the Fine Arts Center. It is held with the goal of inspiring AHS students to pursue their own dreams as graduate from AHS.
