The Caldwell County Schools will present the 18th Annual Hall of Honor induction ceremony on Monday, October 18, at 7:00 pm at the JE Broyhill Civic Center to celebrate Caldwell County graduates who have made significant contributions to their profession and community.

Due to COVID-19 conditions that led to the cancellation of the induction ceremony in 2020, inductees selected for both the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021 will be recognized at the event on October 18. Safety protocols will be observed in an effort to maintain a healthy celebratory environment.
