The Vanguard Hall of Fame was established in 2012 to recognize and honor the volunteers, staff, and performers of our Vanguard Music and Performing Arts programs who have played a significant and long-term role in the advancement of our organization. Each year, the Vanguard Hall of Fame Committee accepts nominations from the beginning of October through the end of December. In the coming year, the Committee will elect new members from those nominations to be inducted at the Annual Vanguard Birthday celebration in March. A special place in the Vanguard Hall has been established where each honoree’s name will be proudly displayed for years to come.

If you wish to nominate someone into the Vanguard Hall of Fame, please find the appropriate forms linked at the bottom of this page.
