HOW ARE NOMINEES SELECTED FOR INDUCTION TO THE HALL OF FAME?
Not every person nominated can be selected for the Hall of Fame. A faculty selection committee reviews the nominations and biographical data received on each of the nominees, and, based on the committee’s decisions, nominees are selected for induction. The selection process takes hours and hours of reading, discussing and reviewing before final selections are made. Nominees who are not selected in one year may be nominated again. This year’s Hall of Fame Committee was composed of the following faculty members: Dan Thielen, Directing Principal; Mr. Matt Geisler, English Teacher; Mr. Jim Kerkvliet, Activities Director; Mr. Tony Arndt, Social Studies Teacher; Ms. Judy Kuchera, Secretary; Mrs. Sherry Babicky, Foreign Language Teacher; Mrs. Christie VanDerGeest, Counselor; Mr. Glenn Schultz, Counselor and Chairperson, Hall of Fame Committee.
HALL OF FAME DISPLAY CASE
All Hall of Fame members are invited to visit Park and view the Hall of Fame display case located in the Theater foyer. Two solid oak plaques hold individual black brass name plates bearing the name and graduation year of each of the 204 Hall of Fame members. Plaques are arranged according to year of induction into the Hall of Fame. In addition, each year large 8 x 10 photographs and accompanying biographical information of the year’s current inductees are also mounted in the display case along with photographs and information about the Hall of Fame scholarship winners. The current inductees display will be available for viewing from August through June through June of the next year. The display case is an impressive sight. Come and see it! (Please feel free to contact us in advance and ask for a tour of the building as well!)
