The Albert Lea Athletic Hall of Fame was formed in 2010 for the purpose of acknowledging outstanding athletes, coaches, and state championship teams that have made significant historical contributions to the athletic program at Albert Lea High School. Through the fund raising efforts of the Hall of Fame, money raised will go from the Albert Lea Education Foundation (non-profit 501-3C corporation) to Albert Lea High School sports program for the sole purpose of lowering student participation fees across all sports.
