ABOUT the hall of fame

During the many years of existence of Dobyns-Bennett the school has graduated many students who continued their growth to extremely high levels of achievement and have made major contributions to society. To recognize and honor such accomplishments and contributions, in 2009 we established the first Dobyns-Bennett Alumni Association Hall of Fame and inducted the first five members.
 
The accomplishments of those in the Hall of Fame are very impressive and I urge you to learn about these incredible men and women from Kingsport.
