The Hall of Distinction was established by the Board of Education during the 2012-13 school year. The hall is located in the lobby outside the Arnold Packer Hughs Auditorium in Monticello High School. A ceremony is held each year in honor of the inductees.

The hall’s committee, which is comprised of various stakeholders in the Monticello community, is charged with perusing applications of potential inductees to ensure they meet the criteria for inclusion in the HOD. Recipients will be selected by the committee in the spring and honored at a reception the following fall.
