Order of the Flame

The Richland Two Order of the Flame has been established by the Richland Two Education Foundation to recognize graduates, former employees and friends of Richland School District Two. These individuals, whose civic, professional or volunteer activities, may have enriched the lives of others in the district through significant contributions of time, talent or resources to the school district, their community or their profession. Such persons may have contributed in an extraordinary way — including enhancing the quality of education in Richland Two; improving district programs; enhancing the welfare of others by outstanding leadership and service; or dedicating themselves to a profession that resulted in products, services or activities that entertained, helped or inspired others.
Awardees of the Richland Two Order of the Flame have represented the District with honor, humility and high moral standards.
