Distinguished Alumni


The Dodgeville High School Distinguished Alumni Program honors DHS graduates who have achieved distinction in their chosen career, overcome significant obstacles in their lives, or contributed greatly to their communities. The program serves to inspire current students by demonstrating the connection between a Dodgeville High School education and future success.

Potential honorees are nominated by members of the community and reviewed and selected by a committee of high school staff, students, and community members. The individuals selected are honored at a school-wide program each spring, and a photo and plaque are added to the Dodgeville High School Distinguished Alumni display, For Dodgeville High, located in the south hallway of E-wing. A timeline for events each year are as follows.

  • November 1st – 3rd Friday in January: nominations are accepted

  • April: selection committee meets and notifies recipients

  • May: school visit and induction ceremony
