GEF taking nominations for Greenwood Schools Hall of Honor

The Greenwood Education Foundation is once again taking nominations for the Greenwood Schools Hall of Honor. The Hall of Honor was established to recognize distinguished graduates and associates of the Greenwood School System throughout the years. Honorees will be inducted at the annual reunion luncheon that is held in the fall in connection with homecoming. The honorees will receive a plaque and will also be honored by having a plaque placed on the wall in the administration building.

The prospective honorees may be nominated by alumni and friends of the Greenwood schools and the selections will be made by the entire 18-member GEF board.

To be eligible for induction, the honoree must meet two or more of the following criteria: (1) either have attended or contributed to the Greenwood School System, (2) contributed to mankind, (3) been successful in life, (4) dedicated their lives to education, (5) been successful in their professions. Induction is open to anyone who meets these criteria, whether they are alive or dead. The honor is not limited to graduates of GHS.

From three to five persons will be inducted each year.

To make nominations to the Hall of Honor please send the name of the nominee, their address or address of any surviving relatives if the nominee is deceased, with a listing of the reasons you think this person should be inducted into the Greenwood Schools Hall of Honor to The Greenwood Education Foundation, 440 East Gary, Greenwood, AR. Nominations previously received will once again be considered this year. For more information please contact JoElla Skaggs at 996-4141.
