Potosi High School has a new Hall of Fame display in front of the main office at P.H.S. that was began with the initial class of inductees last school year. The new Hall of Fame recognizes athletes, teams and individuals that have made significant contributions to the school and or community.

The former Hall of Fame that had been in place was primarily athletic based with “All State” recognitions of one sort or another as well as successful teams that were at the “Best of Class” level.

With the new Hall of Fame that has been established, Potosi High School now honors students or other distinguished former students or faculty members for service to community, country, or the school district in the Hall of Fame.

With this idea in mind, the Potosi R-3 School District established, during the 2018-2019 school year, a Potosi School District Hall of Fame honoring those who have significantly contributed to or brought honor to the Potosi R-3 School District.

All current members of the Hall of Fame were grandfathered in to the Potosi School District Hall of Fame. This process now allows the district to recognize not only athletes, but also former students, graduates, community members, and educators.

The Potosi School District Hall of Fame was established to recognize and honor Potosi R-3 School District students, student-athletes, community, or faculty members that have made outstanding contributions or accomplished outstanding achievements while attending, after graduating, or while serving the Potosi R-3 School District.
