On October 8, 2013, Marquette Area Public Schools inducted two new members to the Pendill Wall of Excellence: Sallie Chisholm and Gordy LeDuc. The wall honors outstanding graduates of Graveraet or Marquette Senior High School. Inductees must not only have shown success in their careers but also have demonstrated acts of giving back for the betterment of mankind.
There are now nine outstanding alumni enshrined on the wall: Coaches, scientists, authors, philanthropists, teachers and an architect.
The Education Foundation seeks nominations from the general public for the next cycle. Anyone can make a nomination of an individual they feel is worthy of the honor. Nomination forms, with criteria, can be picked up at the Superintendent's office or by calling: (906) 225-4200. Nominations must be submitted in written form by Feb. 14, 2014.
