The Foundation for Saline Area Schools Hall of Fame was created to permanently honor individuals who have demonstrated outstanding individual ability, leadership, character, personal drive and dedication in their service to Saline Area Schools and, by extension, the community of Saline. The Hall of Fame is permanently displayed near the auditorium in Saline High School - visible to students, teachers and guests more than 350 days per year.
