Hall of Fame

One of Saint Xavier/Ottawa Catholic/Marquette High School/Marquette Academy’s most treasured honors is to be rewarded as an individual who has been recognized for outstanding professional or personal achievement or for contributions to furthering the mission of this institution.  Each year, the selection committee will choose alumni or friends who achieve distinction through career achievement, community or school involvement or unique contributions to society.

The Marquette Hall of Fame preserves the significant legacies of these individuals in an exhibit, which provides a brief biographical profile of the individual.  It shares the past in order to inspire and inform the future.

Selection Criteria:

Candidates for induction into The Marquette Hall of Fame are selected from nominations submitted by people within the Marquette community.  The committee screens nominations and inductees are announced in the spring of each year.

Individuals elected to The Marquette Hall of Fame represent accomplishments in a wide variety of endeavors.  They have distinguished themselves in the media, the military, elected public office, entertainment, medicine, scientific research, entrepreneurship, business and many other professions.  They have shown themselves to be outstanding contributors to society and their respective communities, as well as being representative of the efforts of the mission of Marquette.

Each year, before the induction ceremony, inductees are presented to Marquette students at a school function.  Our intention here is to demonstrate to current students that a Marquette education or affiliation combined with appropriate individual effort can produce success in life.  The Marquette Hall of Fame inductees continue to make many contributions to our school long after the induction process is over.  Hopefully, by example, they will inspire future Marquette alumni and friends to distinguish themselves.
