Virtual Hall of Fame

In 1872, three years after Belton, Missouri was founded, the first board of education was formed.  From the beginning, the residents of Belton have considered the school system a priority by providing dedicated board members, strongly supporting bond issues for educational and capital improvements and ongoing support in our educational process.  Professional and dedicated administrators, teachers and support staff are also a vital part of the equation.

For almost 140 years, Belton has maintained an enviable reputation for quality education.  Belton High School alumni have excelled in the fields of science, medicine, law, business, engineering, education, music, the arts, religion and service to our country.  Their impact reaches around the world.

The Belton High School Hall of Fame, established in 1998, honors the lifetime achievements of those who have distinguished themselves in their professional careers, for service and contributions to their communities, or in other ways that reflect positively on the educational foundation received at Belton High School.

The success of those inducted into the Belton High School Hall of Fame can be measured in many ways:  career, scholastic or other high achievement, civic activities, service to others, or success despite obstacles in a variety of endeavors.  Recipients of Hall of Fame recognition, living or deceased, have established a reputation of honor and serve as models of excellence.

Each year, the Hall of Fame inducts up to five new members. Nominations are accepted year round and are available on request and due by June 30th of each year will be eligible for consideration in that year’s BHS Hall of Fame and are kept on file to be considered for up to five subsequent years.  

For questions regarding the Hall of Fame contact Sonja Abdelgawad at (816) 348-1151 or by email at

Hall of Fame members are determined by committee. The committee consists of Hall of Fame members, school district staff and members of the community.
