Eric J. Romanino Hall of Fame
At the regular meeting of the Board of Education on Monday, December 8, 2014, the Board adopted a resolution designating the Hall of Fame as the "Eric J. Romanino - Beacon High School Athletic Hall of Fame" in honor of his many contributions to the School District in his 34 years of service.
Established in 1996, the Beacon High School Athletic Hall of Fame provides an opportunity for the school to recognize athletes, coaches, and others for their outstanding athletic accomplishments or contributions to athletics at the district, local, state or national levels.
The goal of the Hall of Fame committee is to seek, assess and select inductees to the Hall of Fame. Applications are accepted year round and reviewed and vote on by the Hall of Fame Committee yearly.

*2020: After careful consideration, the HOF Committee along with the Athletic Department have decided to postpone the 2020 Beacon Athletics Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony until Winter 2021-2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. An in-person ceremony surrounded by friends, family and colleagues is what makes the honor extremely special for our inductees, so the decision to wait until this can be done was agreed upon.
