The Buckley Wall of Fame is a dedication to Whiting High School graduates who have
overachieved in their accomplishments and successes in their contribution to
society in the areas of academics, athletic and civil accomplishments. The Buckley
wall of Fame was established in 2005 by the Whiting Board of School Trustees in honor
of James J. Buckley, Whiting High School Class of 1942.
