Nominees sought for Hall of Fame

The Seymour High School Athletic hall of fame is accepting nominations for its inaugural Hall of Fame class.

Nominations may be nominated in one of four categories:

Athlete/team: An athlete or team shall have completed high school for at least 20 years prior to being eligible for nomination. A team is inducted and honored by the HOF with a team plaque. Individuals from the team are eligible for induction as an individual.

Coach/contributor: An individual who has made outstanding contributions to athletics in some capacity other than athlete, such as coach, athletic administrator, sports medicine, sports media, or financial supporter.

The coach/contributor may be eligible after 10 years of service to Seymour High School. If a coach/contributor has 25 years of experience, he/she would be eligible immediately.

Requirements for nominees will also be judged on their significance to athletics at Seymour. The official nomination form approved by the Board of Directors must be completed and submitted to the athletisc office.

All honorees are to be of high moral character and have not been convicted of a felony.

Any person who is properly nominated but not selected to the athletics Hall of Fame shall remain on the list of eligible nominees for five years without having to be re-nominated each year.

Inductees into the Hall of Fame will be selected by the Board of Directors.

An induction ceremony will be conducted, and all inductees that have been selected to the Athletic Hall Of Fame must have representation present at the induction ceremony.

The induction ceremony will be conducted during a home basketball game during the 2017-18 season.

The nomination forms are available at Seymour High School home varsity boys and girls basketball games or at www.seymourathletics.com and click on hall of fame.
