New for for this year is the creation of the Willis J. Pierre Memorial Hall. Mr. Pierre taught at The Hill from 1970 until 2002 and remained actively engaged in the School until his passing in 2018, authoring three books about the School's history and serving on the Hall of Fame Selection Committee. This new category recognizes great athletes and teams of the pre-World War II era that might otherwise be overlooked for Hall of Fame recognition. There will be a maximum of one athlete or team in this class each induction year. This year, the Selection Committee honored Clarence A. Paulson, Class of 1923.
