Soddy Daisy High School will hold its Alumni Hall of Fame induction ceremony at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, March 1, in the Soddy Daisy High School gymnasium.

To this purpose, alumni will be recognized who have made the greatest contributions to our school, our community, the nation or the world. The inaugural event was held March 6, 2009. 2019 marks the 11th class to be inducted, and 83 alumni have been recognized prior to this year’s program.
