Alumni Hall of Fame

Shaker High School has many outstanding alumni whose lives bring credit to the North Colonie Central School District. The Shaker High School Alumni Hall of Fame provides a vehicle for the recognition of these individuals. Every year we look to expand our group of honorees and seek nominations for our Hall of Fame. We believe members of the Hall of Fame are role models who can inspire our students to continue the tradition of excellence which defines the North Colonie community.
