The Hamilton Heights Athletic Hall of Fame Committee is seeking nominations from the public for the Class of 2021. Nominations are being accepted through March 31, 2021.
Hamilton Heights Athletic Hall of Fame was created to recognize and honor Hamilton Heights High School athletes, coaches, teams, and athletic program contributors for their achievements and/or contributions to the Hamilton Heights High School athletic program.
The Hamilton Heights Athletic Hall of Fame, created in 2019, is an opportunity for the corporation to recognize graduates and other individuals for their contributions to the district and achievements inside and outside the community. The committee selects inductees not only for their athletic achievements at Heights but because they demonstrate the values of good character and citizenship.
“While the global health pandemic required us to push back our inaugural Hall of Fame induction ceremony scheduled this past March, we are hopeful that we can host a special ceremony for this first class in March of 2021 followed by a ceremony in the fall honoring the Class of 2021,” explained Mitch Street, Dean of Students and former Head Football Coach for the Huskies, who was instrumental in bringing this recognition program to life at Heights. “The 2020 inductees represent one team and four multi-sport athletes that span of the course of eight decades. The inaugural (2020) Athletic Hall of Fame Inductees include the 1932 Cicero Red Devils Boys' Basketball Team, Kent Carson (Class of 1968), Doug Mitchell (Class of 1975), Dustin Sherer (Class of 2005), and Sierra Brown (2014 Graduate).
