Recognizing Distinguished Graduates

Putnam City Schools’ graduates have gone on to become pilots, authors, teachers, and leaders in various businesses and we want to recognize those accomplishments. 

Each year, the Board of Trustees for the Putnam City Schools Foundation has the challenging task of choosing one person to be inducted into our Wall of Fame. This honor is reserved for graduates of one of the three Putnam City High Schools who have experienced significant success in their chosen field.

At an induction ceremony typically held in April, the entire Putnam City community joins in celebrating the individual and the great things taking place in Putnam City Schools. The Wall of Fame resides in the Putnam City Schools administration building as a collection of portraits of all the honorees.

If you know a graduate who should be considered for this honor, please let us know! We are always looking for impressive graduates to celebrate.

We are excited to announce that Dr. Greg Walton, a 1980 graduate of Putnam City High School, has been selected as the 2020 Wall of Fame Honoree. Click here to learn more.
