C logo web

The School Improvement Council (SIC) of Camden High School (CHS) is accepting nominations for the 2020 Class of the CHS Hall of Fame to honor alumni whose accomplishments, deeds and character exemplify outstanding achievement in their life’s work and/or service to their community. This award may also honor individuals who did not graduate from Camden High School, but who have significantly and consistently contributed to the work and mission of Camden High School. Graduates of Jackson High School may be nominated for this award. Nominations will be kept confidential.

This year’s ceremony will be held on November 12 at 833 South Broad in Camden. If current circumstances continue, decisions will be made regarding how much of the program can be presented in-person versus virtually. Either way, the SIC said it is looking forward to honoring the Hall of Fame Class of 2020 inductees in the first-class way they deserve.
