Gallery of Honor

 
Welcome to the East County Gallery of Honor. The Grossmont Healthcare District has dedicated the foyer of our Conference Center as a special place to recognize the achievements of current and former East County residents. The men and women whose photographs and biographies line our walls have brought honor to themselves and to their home communities in various disciplines, including medicine, sports, music, fine arts, performing arts, military, politics, education, television, science, business and aviation. The Grossmont Healthcare District is one of the largest public agencies serving the East County. Accordingly, it is fitting and proper that we take a leading role in reminding our local residents of the significant roles that our fellow citizens have played in shaping the world of today. The honorees represent more than 130 years of our history, from the 1870s to the 21st Century.

In selecting the Gallery of Honor inductees, we have applied various criteria, including residence in the East County, significant contributions beyond our borders and recognition outside the local community. These honorees were suggested by many leading citizens, including the several historical societies within our District. We hope that you agree with our selections and, based on your visit, we hope that you have derived a greater sense of the accomplishments of the men and women who have shaped the place we call home.
