Wall of Honor Project Nominations

Help Place a Nominee on the La Follette High School Wall of Honor

“The Wall of Honor is a great way to give honor to our past while providing for La Follette’s future”
-La Follette Principal Chad Wiese.


The La Follette Wall of Honor project is a way to grow the La Follette Individual Endowment Fund of the Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools. The goal is to reach at least $100,000. This endowment fund provides funds for grant requests from teachers for projects that enhance their ability to teach. The grants are made on an annual basis after review and selection. Currently La Follette’s endowment fund is just over $22,000, the lowest of all Madison High Schools! We are doing this  by way of the La Follette Capital Fund established in 2004. Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools
