Hall of Fame


2018 Hall of Fame Induction
Saturday, Nov. 17
12 p.m.
Cochise College, Douglas Campus
$30/person includes buffet lunch

The Cochise College Hall of Fame celebrates legends. What is a legend? In Hall of Fame terms, it may be someone who was a positive mentor; whose actions make him or her more than an alumnus, employee or ambassador; whose ideology, values, or example provided solid foundation for others to follow; whose former students continue to seek their advice; or whose financial or volunteer contributions significantly impacted the institution.

The Hall of Fame inducts nominees in four categories: alumni, team/group of students, former faculty/staff and community leader. Inductees have made a major contribution to the mission and goals of Cochise College, or have contributed in a significant way to the lives of others after being a part of the Cochise College community. Honorees have demonstrated a deep connection to Cochise College, or have made a substantial contribution to the college through personal time, effort and interest.
