The West Jefferson Hills School District is re-launching its Halls of Fame program, with the nomination process underway through November 15.


Thomas Jefferson High School graduates who have distinguished themselves in the areas of academics, arts or athletics, as well as staff and community members, will be considered for induction (see criteria below). Nominees can include former students, teachers, staff and community members who have made unique and lasting contributions to the district and the West Elizabeth, Jefferson Hills and Pleasant Hills communities.

West Jefferson Hills had announced it was launching the Halls of Fame program during the 2019-20 school year, but the first class of inductees were never announced or recognized due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Nominations are being accepted for the Classes of 2021 and 2022 to join the initial class of honorees from 2019-20. Committees have been re-established in each of the three areas - academics, arts and athletics - to consider the nominees and make selections for induction.

The induction ceremony will be held in the first half of 2023.

The criteria for applications/nominations for alumni are:

  • Must be a graduate of Thomas Jefferson High School at least five years prior to application/nomination;
  • Must have made significant and positive contributions during high school and had significant achievements after graduating from WJHSD

The criteria for applications/nominations for Staff Member/Community Member are:

  • Must no longer be employed by WJHSD
  • Must have made significant and positive contributions during their association with the WJHSD
  • The applicant’s or nominee’s association with WJHSD could have been one or more of the following:  administrator, teacher, activity advisor, coach, support staff member, school board member, volunteer, etc.

A complete listing of the nomination criteria is listed on the application, which is available online at, or a hard copy can be picked up at the WJHSD Administration Building (830 Old Clairton Road, Jefferson Hills). The completed nomination forms can be dropped off at this same location any weekday from 8 a.m-4 p.m. or returned to:
