Honoring Riverview School District’s Distinguished Alumni

On January 11, 2014, the Riverview School District celebrated the accomplishments of eight alumni by inducting them into the Distinguished Alumni Class of 2013. Under the direction of their teachers, students currently completing course work in the Sports and Entertainment class hosted the annual event. A supportive crowd of 160 former and current teachers and administrators, along with current students, colleagues, family and friends were in attendance. Throughout the evening, each inductee shared highlights from the extraordinary pathways they have taken and continue to traverse. Faculty and staff members, who invariably added depth and richness to each of the inductee’s experiences during their time at Riverview were noted and honored with sincere gratitude. Riverview is proud of a history that is built on the passion, patience, staunch support, and boundless enthusiasm of its members, past and present. Congratulations to this year’s inductees, including:
