RSHS Hall of Fame Class of 2020 Inductees Announced

ROCK SPRINGS — Over the past year, a committee composed of Rock Springs High School (RSHS) staff, district personnel, and community members have worked to select the Rock Springs High School Hall of Fame Class of 2020 inductees list.

Many steps have been taken along the way, but none more important than opening to the public the chance to nominate Distinguished Alumni, Contributors, Coaches, Athletes, and Teams. With over 100 years of RSHS history to examine, and multiple nominations submitted, the committee had quite the task on their hands.

The committee selected ten members, and three teams for the Hall of Fame. This fall, these foundational alumni, contributors, coaches, and athletes will be inducted into the RSHS Hall of Fame on September 5, 2020. The Tiger Town Bash Pep Rally is scheduled for Thursday, September 3, 2020 and the Hall of Fame football game is scheduled for Friday, September 4, 2020, contingent on the current COVID-19 Coronavirus regulations.
