La Lumiere

Hall of Fame


La Lumiere School is proud to recognize alumni and coaches for outstanding contributions to our athletic program. Their commitment, achievement, and sense of sportsmanship set the standard for young athletes who follow in their footsteps.


Inductees are chosen based on a level of excellence and commitment to a particular sport. Consideration is also given to candidates who participated in multiple sports during their careers, even if their level of success varied in those sports.
