These individuals were selected by the Hall of Fame Committee and their selection was based on these individuals’ contributions to their profession and to their communities.
The Connections Weekend is an annual event that is intended to bring Galion graduates into a connection with current students and with the community. The Weekend features a career day at both the Galion High School and Middle School, the homecoming activities bringing back the Alumni Band on Friday night, and the Connections Hall of Fame Banquet and Induction Ceremony on Saturday.
Additional activities are scheduled for Saturday including the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast, the Galion PTO games and a 5K walk. All community members are welcome to attend any and all of these activities.
