hall-of-fame-inductees-poster_2019On May 9, 2019, at The Mall at Greece Ridge, the Greece Regional Chamber of Commerce and Presenting Sponsor Buckmans Plaza hosted the 29th Youth Hall of Fame Ceremony, inducting 15 juniors and seniors from area schools into the Youth Hall of Fame. Area businesses and community leaders attended the event to recognize and congratulate the students being inducted. Approximately 150 people were in attendance.

The Youth Hall of Fame is an initiative of the Greece Regional Chamber of Commerce with support from regional businesses, schools, and government. Inductees are chosen annually by the Chamber’s Youth Hall of Fame Committee, currently chaired by Rhonda Ball of The Summit Federal Credit Union, and comprised of Greece Regional Chamber Business Members, all of whom serve as volunteers. The Committee reviews nominations of area 11th and 12th grade students who have shown leadership and community spirit through exceptional personal, volunteer, scholastic, and workforce achievement. Candidates for the award are nominated by high school teachers, counselors and administrators, area businesses, community youth agencies, service organizations or area residents. 

The Greece Regional Chamber presents this award to youth who have demonstrated leadership and dedicated service to our community and their peers, have coped with a life challenge, or overcome a personal tragedy. In some cases, our award winners meet all of these criteria. 

The Youth Hall of Fame is featured as a year-long display at the Greece Regional Chamber’s kiosk at The Mall at Greece Ridge to honor not only this year’s outstanding students but also those from the past 28 years.
