The Malden High School Alumni Association (MHSAA) will host their sixth Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at Anthony’s on Friday evening, May 3, 2024, showcasing eight notable Malden High alumni and their significant contributions to one of the following fields: arts, business, community service, education, government, media, military, sciences and technology. All the net proceeds from the event go directly to the MHSAA Scholarship Fund, which awards money to Malden High School students entering college the following year. To date, $123,000 has been awarded to deserving Malden High School students.

The Alumni Hall of Fame was founded in 2014 by MHSAA to celebrate exceptional accomplishments of alumni and contributions to the school community by alumni and others. According to the MHSAA website, “MHS Alumni are eligible to be nominated to the Hall of Fame ten years ‘after attending’ or graduating” and “will be selected from nominations made by alumni and community members and reviewed by the Hall of Fame Selection Committee.” Inductees receive an award and a permanent plaque that is displayed in Malden High School.
