Alumni Recognition

Outstanding Alumni Service Award

The Outstanding Alumni Service Award is presented to an alumnus/a in recognition of exemplary service to Hampton Roads Academy and advancement of the mission of the Academy. It may be earned for many years of accomplishment, or for one noteworthy act. It was created by the Hampton Roads Academy Alumni Association in 1995.

Current members of the faculty, staff, or Board of Trustees, are not eligible to receive the award.
Only living candidates are considered. In the event of the death of a candidate between notification of the award and the award ceremony, the award may be given posthumously with the permission of the family and the selection committee. Since "alumni" includes those who attended Hampton Roads Academy, not just those who graduated, the award is open to graduates and former students.

Athletic Hall of Fame

The purpose of the Hampton Roads Academy Athletic Hall of Fame is to recognize an individual or individuals of HRA whose accomplishments have brought pride and distinction to HRA. It should serve to inspire our current students to achieve greatness in athletics while embodying the HRA core values.

Nominations will be accepted for any individual or teams who, through their extraordinary achievement, commitment, sacrifice, and dedication to our athletic program have brought pride and distinction to our school and our community.
