Special Recognition Nomination for an Individual: A student-athlete, administrator, faculty, or community member can be nominated to the Hall of Fame. For administrators, faculty, or community members to be nominated in this category, a written recommendation must be received by the Hall of Fame committee that addresses the individual's successes; commitment to HHS student-athletes; years of service; and special accomplishments that merit induction into the Hall of Fame.
