Members of the Point Pleasant High School Hall of Fame are often athletes who excelled in their sport, but also demonstrated good character. And the PPHS Hall of Fame Committee is now accepting nominations for the 2010 class that will be inducted this fall.
Nomination forms are available at the PPHS office and Point Pleasant River Museum. Nominees must be graduates of PPHS and must have been athletes prior to 1970. In addition, nominees must have at least two varsity letters. Hall of Fame members also are required to be good role models and citizens. Nominations will be accepted through May 31.
Once the nomination period is over, the Hall of Fame Selection Committee will meet and vote on this year’s class. To be elected to the Hall of Fame, nominees must receive at least 75 percent of the vote. Following the initial nomination, nominees may be eligible for a vote each year for a minimum of three successive years and may be re-nominated thereafter. All votes will be taken by roll call unless a secret ballot is called for by a member. For voting purposes, a conflict of interest will exist for a trustee when his/her immediate family member is up for vote or the vote is regarding that member.
The selection committee may select up to 12 new members this year. Anyone interested in serving on the selection committee may join. To serve on the committee, members must pay annual dues of $5.
The 2009 Hall of Fame consisted of 15 former athletes.
