In 2021 we looked at small events that would minimize the chance of spreading the covid virus while raising sufficient funds to award a significant number of college scholarships for the 2021-2022 school year.  We did not find any suitable events.

2022 Hall of Honor Inductees

Gordon Hartman

Once a year, HSFE inducts a class of heroes – people who have overcome obstacles to achieve success and serve their community. We aren’t just raising a glass to toast their accomplishments; we are illuminating role models for our youth. HSFE celebrates the biographies of our honorees, and inscribes their stories on our online Hall of Honor and in our displays at public schools. Our Mentor’s Reach program will use the stories to motivate middle school and high school students, showing them how others have succeeded through hard work, persistence, and staying in school.

Scholarship Recipients

The Hall of Honor Induction Ceremony also salutes our annual Scholarship Recipients. These students have done their due diligence, staying in school and achieving academic success. They attend the induction ceremony and hear the stories of our honorees. At the Hall of Honor Induction Ceremony, two generations come together, with elders shining a light for our youth.

The Hall of Honor Induction Ceremony is a major fundraising effort, providing the means to advance our programs in the schools and our scholarships. In 2023 please acknowledge this vital mission with your sponsorship.  Contact Ken Saks at (210) 843-5858.
