Arts & Athletics Hall of Fame
Throughout the long history of Forest Lake Area High School activities, numerous individuals have made significant and lasting positive impacts on advancing the recognition of Forest Lake’s educational community. Many years ago, an Athletics Hall of Fame was created to honor the most successful athletes and coaches from this high school. But due to several circumstances over the years, that Hall of Fame had not been updated for many years and had become inactive.
In 2012, the leadership of the high school and school district decided to renew and regenerate the school's Athletics Hall of Fame, and new inductees - including both athletes and coaches - were elected.
Then in 2013, the decision was made to expand this hall of fame to also include students, coaches and advisors who have made significant contributions to the district's arts programs - which includes any other activity sanctioned by the Minnesota State High School League, such as music, debate, speech, one-act play and robotics.
Every summer, new members are inducted in a formal induction ceremony that takes place on the Monday before graduation, held in conjunction with the high school's Academics Awards ceremony. A separate reception is then held the next day to honor those new inductees to both the High School's Arts & Athletics Hall of Fame and the District's Hall of Fame.
