HENAAC Hall of Fame

The mission of the HENAAC Hall of Fame (HHF) is to capture the extraordinary achievements of its inductees in an educational medium that will enlighten a nation, honor the Hispanic community, and contribute to the advancement and betterment of society by inspiring future generations of engineers and scientists.

Great Minds in STEM established the Hall of Fame in 1998 to recognize the world-class achievements of its most accomplished winners. The thirty-two (32) members of the Hall of Fame have achieved a level of excellence that opens doors to advances in science, technology, engineering and math, and opens minds about the contributions of Hispanics in these fields.

The Hall of Fame Museum Exhibit, which consists of a graphite portrait of each member, is a one-of-a-kind exhibit of our nation’s leading Hispanic engineers and scientists.
