Walk of Fame Committee

Nominations for the 2019 Class of the Walk of Fame will be accepted beginning June 2019. Please watch for announcements.

The Walk of Fame Steering Committee was established by the Hendersonville City Council and the Henderson County Board of Commissioners to recognize outstanding contributors to the growth and development of Henderson County

The goal of the Walk of Fame is to recognize individuals, past or present, who have made a significant difference to Henderson County in any field of endeavor. "Significant difference" is defined as having a positive and lasting impact on the quality of life of the citizens of Hendersonville and Henderson County. 

Categories to be considered are the following:

     Agriculture                     Business                  Cultural Arts
     Education                      Government             Human Services
     Industry                         Medicine                   Religion   

Honorees are selected based on the significance of the contribution rather than the field of endeavor. They shall have demonstrated that they have made major investments in Hendersonville and Henderson County in time, energy, and resources for the public good. They shall be recognized in publications, a public ceremony, and inclusion on a "Walk of Fame" in downtown Hendersonville.
