STARS Hall of Fame
The STARS Hall of Fame was established in 2009 by the San Juan Education Foundation, with the support of the school district, to honor exceptional San Juan Unified School District graduates who embody an innovative spirit and have made their mark in their chosen profession.

The San Juan Education Foundation recognizes individuals who have been successful professionally and who have given back to the community in a way that supports the development of our youth.
An Evening with the STARS
Installing the inductees into the STARS Hall of Fame takes place annually at the Evening with the STARS event at which inductees (or their families for posthumous awards) receive the STARS recognition award.
Reaching for the STARS
The San Juan Education Foundation has partnered with the San Juan Unified School District to challenge high school seniors to share their plans to “reach for the stars” and build on their SJUSD accomplishments to achieve success while giving back in a meaningful way to their community.
