The Genesee Community College office of Alumni Affairs along with the Athletics Department are seeking nominations for the first class of inductees to the newly established Sports Hall of Fame. The first class of honorees will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at a reception at the inaugural Homecoming celebration on Saturday, October 2, 2010.
The Selection Committee seeks to identify outstanding alumni athletes, teams, or people involved in Genesee athletic service for induction into the new Sports Hall of Fame. Inclusion in the Hall of Fame is the highest athletic honor that the College bestows on its alumni and supporters, and will recognize the outstanding athletic achievements of individuals and teams of every era who have fostered athletic achievement and sportsmanship at the College.
The criteria for nominating an individual or team to the Sports Hall of Fame are based on:
- Intercollegiate Athlete- 30 credit hours earned while at GCC; at least five years of time must have lapsed outside GCC; and academic excellence and community service.
- Team- Distinguished in a significant way either through school, regional or national championship or service
- Athletic Service- Any individual who has made a noteworthy contribution to the growth, development and success of GCC athletics. Consideration may include sustained leadership, service and/or support.
“We want to recognize, not only our outstanding alumni who were student athletes,” Jackie Christenson, Alumni Affairs Coordinator said. “But we also want to honor those who have significantly supported athletics in the past or any team that has achieved a noteworthy championship throughout the College’s history.”
Nomination forms can be downloaded from Genesee Community College’s athletics website (http://www.genesee.edu/_content/depts/athletics/Sports_Hall_of_Fame.pdf) and emailed or sent to the Genesee Community College Sports Information Director. Nominations may be submitted by the nominee or by friends, family, past team mates or other colleagues who are familiar with the nominee.
All nominations received by June 1, 2010 will be considered by the Selection Committee for the 2010 Sports Hall of Fame. Please send all nominations to: Sports Information Director- Kristen Schuth, Genesee Community College, One College Road, Batavia, NY 14020 or email: KESchuth@genesee.edu.
