Nominations sought for Aberdeen Central Hall of Fame

ABERDEEN, S.D. (Press Release) – Do you know an outstanding Aberdeen Central Alumnus?  Nominate him or her for the 2019 Aberdeen Central High School Hall of Fame of Fame!  The deadline for nominations to the 2019 CHS Hall of Fame is Jan. 15, 2019.  Nomination forms are available at the Aberdeen Public Schools Foundation website at https://aberdeen.k12.sd.us/foundation/ or by contacting the foundation office at 605-725-7118 or Gretchen.Sharp@k12.sd.us.

The purpose of the CHS Hall of Fame is to recognize and honor the accomplishments and outstanding character of Aberdeen Central High School alumni and others in the areas of Academics/Achievement, Athletics, Fine Arts, and Distinguished Service. (Distinguished Service is a new category accepting nominations this year).  Nominees should be known for their outstanding contributions and dedication that sets them apart from their peers at the high school, university, and/or professional levels.  Nominees may also include non-alumni who have made significant contributions to Central High School as members of the staff, administration, school board, volunteers, or the general public. Their accomplishments within society positively reflect upon the educational quality and stature of Aberdeen Central High School.

Aberdeen Central High School Hall of Fame inductees may be nominated by classmates, family members, or the general public.  Eligible nominees are contacted to provide information and supporting documentation.  Candidates submitting information and documentation are then reviewed by the selection committees who choose each year’s Hall of Fame inductees.

The 2019 CHS Hall of Fame Banquet will take place on Sept. 28, 2019 as part of CHS’s Homecoming festivities.  Tickets will go on sale in the summer of 2019.  The CHS Hall of Fame is a special project of the Aberdeen Public Schools Foundation.
