For more than a century this school has helped to prepare some remarkable people for stellar careers in a variety of fields. Among the notable graduates from the past were leaders in business, education, law, media, and other professions. In an effort to recognize distinguished professionals who have graduated from Sparrows Point High School and, more importantly, to motivate current high school students with the inspiring lives of those achievers, a Sparrows Point High School Alumni Hall of Fame was formed during the 2008-2009 school year as part of the Centennial commemoration.
Each year the school holds an Alumni Hall of Fame Induction assembly for all of the current students to attend in the auditorium. This ceremony involves students from the marching band, chorus, student council, journalism class, and culinary arts club who prepare a presentation to honor the inductees. The inductees are introduced to the student body with a biographical slide show prepared by the journalism class. Each honoree is presented with plaques on behalf of the faculty, students and alumni association, after which the new inductee delivers a motivating speech to the audience consisting primarily of students.
In the Main Office Hallway of the school hang plaques celebrating each inductee. The plaque includes a portrait of the inductee taken at the reception as well as an engraving of an inspiring quote from his or her speech, providing immortal words of inspiration for student now and in the future.
