The Garces Memorial Hall of Honor was established in 2008 to pay homage to alumni and members of the Garces community for their accomplishments both professionally and personally; and for their support of Catholic education and the mission of Garces Memorial High School. The Hall of Honor is a Garces Memorial Alumni Board event.  Each year the Alumni Board accepts nominations from the Garces Community for potential inductees. Alumni Board members review each nominee, then vote for the inductees they deem to be most deserving.  The official induction happens at the annual Hall of Honor Awards Banquet held in MLH each fall.
