The Highland County Hall of Fame recognizes citizens or natives of Highland County who have made invaluable contributions to the county or to the world beyond. By recognizing these individuals, the hall of fame will stimulate an interest in, and an appreciation for, the value of the history of the county and its citizens.

Any member of the Highland County Historical Society may nominate an individual for the hall of fame. The criteria and guidelines for nominations can be found in the application.
Applications may be obtained from the Highland County Historical Society website, www.hchistoricalsociety.weebly.com, or from any local library. Completed applications must be submitted in a sealed envelope and mailed or delivered to Highland House no later than 4 p.m. Saturday, June 1. The address is 151 E.
