The PBL Education Foundation is proud to support the Paxton-Buckley-Loda Alumni Hall of Fame. The Foundation provides financial support for this notable program that recognizes outstanding alumni achievements. Alumni Hall of Fame members serve as ideal role models for all of our students. Each year, the new members speak to our high school students during the student homecoming rally held the Thursday of Homecoming week.
