NORTH EAST — The Cecil College Athletics Hall of Fame is now accepting nominations for its inaugural 2019 class inductees. The deadline for submissions is 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 21.
The purpose of the Cecil College Athletics Hall of Fame is to honor individuals who, through participation, support or interest, have made outstanding contributions to or brought recognition to the athletic programs at Cecil College.
The College will announce the Class of 2019 in late January with a recognition ceremony planned for Saturday, March 30, 2019, in the Physical Education Complex on Cecil College’s North East Campus.
“Cecil College has been honored over the years to have exceptional student-athletes and program supporters, who have all gone on to successful careers and productive lives. The Hall of Fame is meant to highlight their achievements during their time at Cecil College, helping to make it the vibrant and community-driven institute it is today,” Cecil College Athletic Director Ed Durham said.
There are five categories for nominees: Student-Athlete; Coach/Support Staff; Teams; Fans/Community Members; Meritorious Service. The criteria for nominees to be inducted include receiving the majority of votes by the Hall of Fame Committee, no more than 10 individuals will be inducted annually, and arrangements will be made to honor deceased inductees. A nominee not selected for induction during the year of their nomination will remain in consideration for five years following their submission.
The Hall of Fame Committee will consist of alumni, current coaches, and staff. Each inductee will receive a Hall of Fame plaque that will be displayed inside the Physical Education Complex and be presented with a keepsake induction plaque at the induction banquet.
