Howell of Fame Awards

 Howell of Fame Logo

Established in 1987, the Howell of Fame awards recognize members of the Francis Howell community who have made significant contributions to the District. The award is one of the District’s highest and most prestigious honors, and is designed to recognize volunteers who go above and beyond to serve in our schools and/or facilities. FHSD staff are also eligible for the award if they have contributed to their school or the District beyond their regular job responsibilities..


VOLUNTEERS - Parent volunteers, community volunteers, PTO members, volunteer coaches, Great by 8 volunteers, event volunteers (grad nights, Christmas with Santa, etc.), Booster Club volunteers, Parent Club leaders, etc.

COMMUNITY PARTNERS – Area businesses, nonprofits, or organizations that routinely contribute to the Francis Howell School District, its schools, its staff, and/or its students.

FHSD EMPLOYEES – Employees who volunteer their time outside of the classroom and/or building are eligible for a Howell of Fame award, as are those who go "above and beyond" the expectations of their job responsibilities.
