West Florida High School celebrates the 2001 opening of the school with the first class of the West Florida Legacies- an alumni Hall of Fame which will honor graduates and former staff members who are noted for high levels of achievement in his or her field of endeavor and who make a significant contribution to that field.
The nomination process began in July and ended mid August. Nominees had to meet the criteria of being a graduate from at least 10 years prior or retired from service to the school at least three years prior.
“We had a great list of nominations that the committee was able to review and ultimately select the first three members based on their exemplary service in their field, honors and awards, and overall service to the community,” stated West Florida High School Principal Esi Shannon. “ We really feel these three individuals exemplify the West Florida Way. ”
Inductees will be recognized Friday, September 24 at 6:40 pm, during a pre-game ceremony. West Florida’s varsity football team hosts Washington High School at 7:00 pm, immediately following the ceremony. The public and all alumni students and faculty are encouraged to attend. West Florida High School of Advanced Technology is located at 150 E. Burgess Road in Pensacola.
