Time to submit your Hall of Fame nominees

It’s time to be thinking about the next round of nominations for the Santiam Canyon School District Hall of Fame.

For the last 18 years, the school district has held its Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in November to honor those who have had a major impact to the district in a positive manner.   

Each November the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony inducts three to five individuals and a former team before a large crowd at the school commons.  

The ceremony recognizes the recipients with a dinner and a presentation of their accomplishments.  

Recipients are awarded a plaque or medal and their picture is displayed in the gymnasium where many read and admire.  

There are four categories to nominate someone or some team:

• Former Outstanding Student

• Former Outstanding Staff Member (certified or classified)

• Outstanding School District Support/Booster (may or may not have ever worked for the district but made significant contributions above and beyond the average person/business), 

• Former Outstanding Team

Worthy nominations are submitted to the Hall of Fame committee yearly.  Some of the guidelines the committee uses to select recipients are: 

Individual former student and staff nominees should be at least three years removed from the district, unless deceased.  

The nominee’s accomplishments should be something extraordinary or something extra-special which has brought honor and/or recognition to the district through their actions.  

Also, considered are nominees who may have overcome some extraordinary situations to achieve positions of leadership, business person, etc., or have significantly influenced others in a positive manner.  

Former teams should have not only have been successful, but may have overcome unique obstacles, influenced future programs, and was able to bring a special enthusiasm throughout the canyon and to Santiam Canyon Alumni and followers throughout the country.  

All nominations submitted should have accompanying information to verify their accomplishments or contributions (Letters, newspaper articles, awards received, pictures, etc.).  

The committee will look at all nominees and select those to be inducted at the Nov. 12 ceremony.  

It is important to note that all nominations will be reviewed, but not all nominees may be selected.  If a nomination is submitted, but not selected, it is not necessary to resubmit them next year as all nominations are reviewed annually, but you are welcome to add additional information, if they are not selected, to help the selection committee. 

Also, please leave contact information for the nominee so, if selected, they can be easily contacted.  

Nominations are due by June 17.  Submit to: Hall of Fame Committee, Santiam Jr/Sr HS, PO Box 199, Mill City, OR 97360, or by email to David Plotts, [email protected].
