Warriors Hall of Fame
|Westmont High School Hall of Fame|
Westmont High School was founded in 1964 and is rich in history and tradition. In 2019, a Westmont High School Hall of Fame was created. The Hall of Fame was founded to recognize individuals and teams who, by their actions or achievements, made outstanding contributions to WHS Athletics, with hopes of also promoting pride and honor within Westmont High School and helping bring meaning to “The Warrior Way”.
There are three categories by which an individual can be recognized and inducted into the Hall of Fame:
*Westmont High School reserves the right to remove any individual from the Hall of Fame for personal conduct, which reflects discredit upon the school.
Purpose: To recognize those who went on to significant accomplishments in the sports world and exemplified “The Warrior Way”.
