Nominations are now being accepted for Noblesville High School’s newly-established Athletic Hall of Fame. Nomination forms and Hall of Fame guidelines are available online at www.noblesvilleschools.org.
The NHS Athletic Hall of Fame has been established to recognize and honor athletes, coaches and individuals for their significant contributions to NHS athletics, and preserve the history, heritage and tradition of the Miller athletic program.
In order to cover the history of Noblesville athletics, the following schedule has been set for the induction of members.
• The initial induction class, to be announced Aug. 1, will include up to 25 people whose contributions were made before 1970.
• The Hall of Fame Class of 2013 will cover the period of 1970-1979 and may include up to 10 people.
• The Hall of Fame Class of 2014 will cover the period of 1980-1989 and may include up to 10 people.
• The Hall of Fame Class of 2015 will cover the period of 1990-1999 and may include up to 10 people.
• The Hall of Fame Class of 2016 will cover the period of 2000-2009 and may include up to 10 people.
Beginning with the Class of 2017, as many as five people may be inducted each year, and they may represent any year.
A selection committee will review the nominations and determine who will be inducted. That committee will include four members of the executive committee and 11 community representatives.
All nomination forms must be turned in to the NHS Athletic Office by May 1. Each year’s class of inductees will be announced on Aug. 1 and later honored at an induction banquet, and introduced at a home football game. Members of the Hall of Fame will be recognized in a permanent display near the main gymnasium at NHS.
The Hall of Fame Executive Committee includes NHS teachers Dwayne Brashers, Suzie Huber, Dan Nicholson and Butch Robbins; Tony Oilar, NHS assistant athletic director; Sharon Trisler, Noblesville Schools public relations director; and Kathy Richardson, NHS alumna.
