BRAVES HALL OF HONOR
The Braves Hall of Honor was established in 2017 to publicly celebrate Community ISD alumni, employees, and community members who have demonstrated outstanding social contribution to the broader community by making a difference in the lives of others; and/or achieved extraordinary professional success, or achievement in, their field of endeavor.
Selected Hall of Honor members will continue to serve as a positive role model providing inspiration, hope, support and relevance to our current students as they progress through their own areas of study, athletics, extracurricular activities, or community service. The goal of the Hall of Honor is to promote school and community pride.

Note: Special circumstances may be considered in any of the above categories by the Selection Committee. Nominees may be inducted posthumously.
Although the school district maintains authority over all aspects of the Hall of Honor, a selection committee will generally supervise the nomination and selection of inductees, as well as the induction ceremony. The selection committee may modify or expand at will any aspect of the Hall of Honor process.
Committee members were chosen initially by a designee of the Superintendent and two community members. Members of the committee remain anonymous. If a committee member is not available to serve on subsequent selection committees, he or she will recommend their replacement.
A Hall of Honor class will be inducted every five years corresponding with the district's milestone anniversaries.
