Help Us Honor Our
Distinguished Alumni

The Ridgewood High School Alumni Association was established to celebrate and promote the collective experiences unique to the RHS community and strengthen a Tradition of Excellence.

Continuing in the Tradition, the RHSAA desires to recognize the achievements of alumni who have made significant contributions to society through their personal lives, individual passions, talents, professional accomplishments and/or community service. An award will be presented to each inductee or their representative at an induction awards ceremony held every two years. Each inductee's name will be displayed in the designated Distinguished Alumni area located in Ridgewood High School.
