Culver Academies has been blessed with a long line of graduates who have distinguished themselves while on campus, and later served as ambassadors for Culver in the United States and around the world. Since the school’s centennial celebration in 1994, Culver has sought to pay special tribute to those alumni, alumnae, instructors, coaches, and staff who have made unusually significant contributions to various aspects of life at Culver.
On Nov. 8-10, the Academies inducted 25 members into its three halls of fame. Eleven people were inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame, seven were welcomed into the Arts & Letters Hall of Fame, and eight taken into the Horsemanship Hall of Fame. The inductees included former faculty and staff members, boarding school alumni and alumnae, and past summer campers.
The list includes players in the National Football League, National Hockey League, past Olympians, professional musicians, actors, authors, and business leaders. A complete story will be included in the March issue of the Culver Alumni Magazine.
