Indian River High School Alumni Hall of Fame nominations due Dec. 1

November 16, 2020

The Indian River High School Hall of Fame continues to honor alumni who make outstanding achievements in the community and world.

Nomination forms and second recommendation letters from another individual are due Tuesday, Dec. 1. Late applications will not be accepted.

The selection committee is looking for graduates who show great character, citizenship and leadership, and who have made significant contributions in their field.

Eligible nominees must have graduated from Indian River High School at least 10 years prior to the nomination. The candidates will be evaluated on achievements and recognition in their chosen fields in local, state, national or international arenas.

Today’s students are following in great footsteps. Previous inductees include educators, legislators, artists, civic leaders, athletes, first responders and more. They’ve come from as near as Dagsboro and as far as Texas and Michigan. The ideal candidate would be considered a role model whose life and work will inspire IR students in the pursuit of excellence.

Nominations will be carefully considered by an impartial selection committee. The winner will be recognized later with an award plaque at a special event in 2021.

The nomination and induction process is facilitated by Indian River High School Alumni Association in Sussex County. The nonprofit group formed in 2012 to connect alumni, while supporting and promoting IRHS. Indian River High School Alumni Association meets monthly and always welcomes new members.
