After 20 years, El Rancho High School has brought back the School’s Hall of Fame and the chosen Hall of Fame nominees were formally inducted during a ceremony held this past October.
The Hall of Fame was established in 1982 to highlight El Rancho High School alumni, and to motivate current El Rancho High School students.
Officials from El Rancho High School opened the nominee period for this year’s Hall of Fame class this past July. To have been eligible, nominees must have graduated more than 15 years ago and have achieved local, statewide, or national recognition. Some notable inductees include the late Honorable Gloria Molina, and the highly decorated retired Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Detective, Gil Carrillo.
