Nominees sought for Athletic Hall of Fame
July 15, 2002
KALAMAZOO -- The Western Michigan University Athletic Hall of Fame selection committee is soliciting nominations for the 2002 induction class, which will be honored during the weekend of the Toledo versus WMU football game, Nov. 15-16.
Since its inception in 1973, the WMU Athletic Hall of Fame has grown to include 150 former student-athletes, coaches and administrators.
All nominations are forwarded to the selection committee for discussion and consideration. Once statistical and biographical information is verified, the balloting process begins. Induction requires a unanimous vote by the selection committee.
"We're looking for former student-athletes who have set records, or still hold records or were All-Americans," said Dr. Patrick Forrest, committee chairperson and WMU's faculty athletic representative. "The idea is to recognize the very best of Bronco athletes with representation from all sports and time periods."
Induction into the Hall of Fame is based on four criteria.
To submit a nomination, forward a cover letter and supporting materials to Dr. Patrick Forrest, Department of Accountancy, Haworth College of Business, Kalamazoo MI 49008. The deadline for nominations is Aug. 1.
