Hall of Fame 2020

HOF 2020 Masthead.png

The 23rd Annual Hall of Fame Virtual Induction, the Gateway Community College Foundation’s largest scholarship fundraiser, has been skillfully redesigned as an online series beginning Monday, October 12, 2020. This year’s reformatted Hall of Fame theme is Bridge to Equity. It honors and salutes extraordinary achievement and dedication – by our honorees; our students, faculty and staff; the Gateway Community College leadership; the Gateway Community College Foundation Board; and our passionate donors and sponsors who stand together to make Gateway an equitable learning environment.
