The White County High School Hall of Fame committee has officially opened up the Hall of Fame for nominations.
The purpose of the White County High School Athletic Hall of fame is to recognize and honor those WCHS athletes, coaches, and administrators who excelled in their respective sports or coaching/support roles and who helped to bring honor, recognition, distinction, and excellence to White County High School by their conduct both on and off the field or court of competition. This recognition will help maintain the spirit, pride, and sense of community, as well as serving as a historical account of the great athletic traditions of White County High School.
The committee has also decided to redo the Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame will be constructed in a trophy case in the main hallway foyer of White County High School. All athletes selected to receive this honor will have a gold plate placed on a plaque in the trophy case with their name, graduation date, and sports they participated in throughout their high school career.
To be eligible for nomination, athletes must have been graduated from high school for 10 years. They must be in good standing or special circumstances as determined by the committee members. The athletes must have competed in a TSSAA-sanctioned varsity sport and must have excelled in such sport. All the athletes’ accomplishments will also be taken into account.
Nomination for coaches, administrators, or contributors are they must have participated with distinction and/or made significant contributions to athletics at White County High School. Coaches, administrators, or contributors shall be eligible for nomination beginning five years after they have left White County High School for any reason or in special circumstances as determined by the committee members.
Any member of the community can nominate candidates for Hall of Fame memberships. The formal nomination shall be made using the nomination form that has been made public at White County High School. You can pick up the form at the high school, and it must be returned to the high school by Aug. 1. Application packets will then be sent to the nominees by the athletic department. The athletic director must receive all applications packets from the nominee by Sept. 1 of the nominating year to be considered for induction into the fall class.
The fall class will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at a time and place designated by the committee.
