Hall of Fame 2023

On November 9th, the Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation held its annual Hall of Fame Banquet & Awards Ceremony at the EPSF Alumni Center.

Every fall, the Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation honors Elkhorn teachers, staff, alumni, volunteers, and community businesses who have significantly impacted the Elkhorn Public Schools community and its students at its Hall of Fame Reception.

Nearly 200 members of the Elkhorn community attended the event to honor 10 Hall of Fame Recipients.

“Thank you to all our presenters for the laughter, the tears, and the heartfelt messages,” said Stacey L. Falk, Executive Director of the Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation. “Hall of Fame is my favorite event. It just brings together our Elkhorn community in such amazing ways.”
