The event will coincide with the St. Peter High School All-School Reunion big weekend celebration.

“We are excited and honored to welcome another group of impressive individuals to the Saint Peter Hall of Fame, and I especially look forward to doing that in-person at the high school,” SPHS Principal Annette Engeldinger said. “These 11 honorees are proof that education is alive and well in St. Peter!”
