2018 Honorees


Goddard Public Schools Hall of Fame


The Goddard Education Foundation established the Goddard Distinguished Alumni and Friends of Public Education Award in 2018 to celebrate, honor, and recognize the service, success, and achievements of Goddard Public Schools alumni, staff, and friends who are making a difference.  Goddard alumni, staff and community member recipients of the award were honored at a special recognition event in the Fall.


Please help us honor all of our Goddard Distinguished Alumni and Staff Awardees by supporting the creation of a Hall of Fame, where their stories can continue to inspire generations of Goddard Public School students, families, and visitors.


We are proud to share the profiles of these outstanding individuals who have taken the world-class education they received at Goddard Public Schools to impact their profession, their peers and their communities.
