2019 UHS Hall of Fame

The Uniontown Area High School Hall of Fame was established in 2013 to recognize and honor the outstanding individuals and teams from Uniontown Area High School.   These individuals have distinguished themselves through their accomplishments in the arts, academics or athletics. Honoring these individuals and teams promotes a greater sense of school and community pride within our school. To be nominated, one must have been employed by or graduated from UASD at least 20 years ago.

A few of the inductees spoke to the junior and senior classes during an assembly on Friday morning. The inductees were recognized during a pre-game ceremony before the Uniontown vs Deer Lakes Football game.  On Saturday morning a brunch was held in the High School Cafeteria and the induction ceremony followed in the auditorium.
