"The spirit of Union Catholic has always been one of community. I had a wonderful high school experience at UC and made some lifelong friends. I wouldn't trade it for anything!"

Hall of Fame

Union Catholic's rich athletic history is what prompted the inception of the Hall of Fame, with the desire to acknowledge those who have excelled in their particular field. In 2008 the Hall of Fame expanded its honorees to recognize not only athletes, but other alumni, faculty, friends and parents who have made a significant impact on the UC community, their profession, or society.

Nominations for induction to the Hall of Fame will be based in the following categories:

Alumni: Honors an alumnus who has made significant contributions to UC and/or society, by demonstrating leadership in volunteer, academic or professional pursuits.

Athletic: Honors the exceptional athletic achievements of an individual, team or coach. Alumni achievements can be based on their UC athletic careers and/or post-UC athletic careers.

Community Leader: Presented to an alumnus or non-alumnus, who has contributed in a philanthropic manner and has served to advance the ideals and traditions of community service at UC.

Educator: UC Faculty, Staff, or Past Faculty Member who epitomizes the UC values of excellence, respect for learning and giving to one's community; someone who has made a lasting impression on the school.

Parent: A current or past parent who is or has been involved with one or more school committees or activities while promoting the values and ideals so important to the Union Catholic community.
