Hall of Fame - Introduction

Next Induction Ceremony: March 22, 2013.


R. A. Long High School established a "Hall of Fame" in 2005. The first inductees were the 1981 Washington State Girls Basketball champions. Winners of several other awards, including the Wally Whitted Award and Marlen Petersen Award, were automatically inducted into the "Lifetime Achievement" section.

The Hall of Fame seeks to recognize outstanding people associated with R. A. Long High School. The Hall of Fame hopes to attain this goal by honoring members of the R. A. Long community in the following areas:
