Nominations for the Hall of Excellence are accepted year round and anyone can nominate a Central Alum for the Hall of Excellence. Nominees are chosen for induction in March and the Induction Ceremony happens in May each year.
The Central High School Administration, in conjunction with the Central Alumni Association, established the Hall of Excellence in 1999. The Hall was established to recognize Central Alumni, staff, or members of the La Crosse community for outstanding service to La Crosse or the community they live in.
The Hall of Excellence currently has 65 members and is located in the south entry of Central in the lobby of the auditorium. The Hall is funded by Central High School and the Alumni Association.
