School Beacons

School "Beacons" are those people, as identified by each school, who have been involved in the respective athletic program of that school. These are people who have (or may still be) furthering the mission of developing students who "focus on excellence in academics, leadership, character development, and competition as a vital part of the educational experience." These honorees can range from great Salem-Keizer athletes to great coaches to great supporters. What they cannot be is without great character, great integrity, and a much bigger picture of what athletics can do for young people. These Beacons are proud Royal Scots, Celtics, Vikings, Saxons, Olympians, and Titans.
