75th Anniversary and Knights of Honor Dinner

Knights of Honor Award

We are pleased to announce Notre Dame’s 75th Anniversary and our 2021 Knights of Honor Inductees!

During our 75th Anniversary year, we reflect on the significance of this school for each of us and the leadership and dedication of the Brothers of Holy Cross, faculty, and coaches who have impacted over 12,000 students, alumni, and their families. We also celebrate nine individuals and one family who have made a significant contribution to our school community and the greater community.  Each of our 2021 Knights of Honor inductees models for our students what it means to be men and women of character, compassion, and confidence--qualities we develop in our students every day. 


Knights of Honor 

Notre Dame High School recognizes individuals who, in their own way, have contributed to the School community and have lived by the ideals of the Notre Dame Code. Begun in 1986, the Knights of Honor Dinner pays tribute to those individuals who have brought distinction to Notre Dame High School through loyalty, service, and generosity to the School; through outstanding professional achievement; and through service to their church or local community. Alumni, faculty, and loyal friends of Notre Dame may be nominated as Knights of Honor.
