MCAS Wall of Fame
Congratulations to our 2022 inductees: Thomas Dombkowski, Herb Higgin, Sylvester Mabone, and Roxanne Young! They were inducted at the MCAS/MCEA Retirement & Wall of Fame dinner on Thursday, June 2, 2022.
The Michigan City Area Schools "And then Some" Wall of Fame honors school employees who have made outstanding contributions to the children of the Michigan City Area Schools. The award, first presented in 1976, recognizes employees from every area -- administrators, custodians, food service personnel, instructional assistants, maintenance personnel, paraprofessionals, teachers, transportation staff, and secretarial staff. The Wall is permanently displayed in Heritage Hall at Michigan City High School. Inductees are honored each spring at the annual Employee Retirement and Wall of Fame dinner.
To qualify for nomination, the candidate must have been employed by the Michigan City Area Schools for a minimum of 15 years. He or she must have been retired or separated from the school system for at least five years. (Please note: Special circumstances may be considered for those not meeting the 15 year requirement due to hardship or death. In addition, because retirees are occasionally called back to service, the date of separation is the official retirement date, not to include any subsequent employment by MCAS.) Nominations for the Wall of Fame are accepted each spring (generally in March or April) and inductees are selected by a committee comprised of current MCAS employees, representing a broad spectrum of employee groups.
