RANDOLPH — The Randolph Central School District Wall of Fame Committee is seeking nominations for the 2019 wall of fame induction.
This program honors graduates from Randolph Central School who have distinguished themselves in a specific field of endeavor, in civic affairs, in humanitarian affairs or in activities which merit special recognition.
“This is a great way for our school district to honor those individuals who have left a lasting impression or who have greatly impacted our school, community, or the greater world at large,” said District Superintendent Kaine Kelly.
Current or past staff members, current or past Board of Education members and community members who have had a positive impact at Randolph Central School or in our community are eligible to be nominated.
This honor is not exclusively an athletic honor. However, those who are known for their athletic contributions may be nominated.
“We know that there are many individuals who fit the description of a Wall of Fame member and we want to make sure that we get a nomination form on all of them so that we may be able to honor them appropriately,” Kelly said.
It is the district’s hope that future graduates see these inductees as people worthy of emulation, believing the Wall of Fame helps instill a sense of pride in our community while sharing the successes of our past graduates.
A nominating committee of administrators, staff and community residents will select the inductees from applications submitted by members of the public. Nominations will be accepted until Friday, June 14, 2019. Any nominations received after the June 14 deadline in addition to any not selected in any given year will be held and considered the following year for induction.
The honorees will receive a plaque with a brief description of their accomplishments. A duplicate plaque will be permanently placed on the Wall of Fame at the Randolph Central High School.
Honorees will also be honored during half time of a home Randolph Football game this fall as well as at an Induction Dinner the following night.
“Our hope is that the Wall of Fame Induction weekend will be a great time for families and the community to come together and celebrate the accomplishments of one of their own,” Kelly said.
Nomination forms can be obtained by contacting the High School Main Office at 358-7007 or by downloading or filling out the nomination form online at www.randolphcsd.org.
