Since 1982, The Lakewood Rangers Education Foundation has inducted several alumni from three categories (Athletic, Staff, and Distinguished Alumni) every year into the Hall of Fame. On September 14th, these inductees and their biographies were published online.

The website was built over the summer, by an LHS student intern and two LREF staff members.

There are over 446 inductees, and more are inducted every year. These records will be stored online now, and accessible from any computer. You can view the past and current inductees at http://lakewoodrangers.touchpros. com/Home2.aspx or in the athletic hallway on the interactive touch wall.

The inductees of 2018 were introduced at the ceremony on Thursday, and the website went public during the desert reception afterward. The website is still in progress; not all of the alumni have full biographies or photos.

The Lakewood Ranger Education Foundation is still entering information on inductees from the past as they come upon it, but they plan to have full biographies for inductees in the coming years.

Eventually, the website will include more archived files, including yearbooks, photos, and LHS times articles, all dating back to 1916.

The electronic system will replace the plaques that have been made for past inductees, but these plaques still hang in the athletic hallway.  This system is meant to hold records of alumni safely, while still bringing worth to their accomplishments.
