KHS announces Hall of Fame project
The school district has announced the formation of the Kingston High School Athletic Hall of Fame project.
KINGSTON >> The Kingston City School District has announced the formation of the Kingston High School Athletic Hall of Fame project and is now accepting nominations for the inaugural class of inductees for next summer.
Recently retired Athletic Director Glen Maisch has been named to chair the Hall of Fame Committee. Mike Rienzo is the secretary and Rick Cowles the treasurer. Other committee members are Ron Woods, Tony Badalato, Bill Stote, Robin Dassie, Stephen Hack, Kathy Longendyke and Sandy Mancuso-Lopez.
The project is to honor past athletes, coaches, administrators and supporters who have made outstanding contributions to Kingston’s athletic program and beyond to the college, professional and Olympic levels.
Winners will be inducted yearly at an honorary dinner as part of homecoming weekend and introduced at halftime of the homecoming game.
“As the Kingston Athletics Department embarks on its 102nd yard of service to the greater Kingston area, it will be an exciting challenge to look into the history and honor those who achieved excellence, some of whom have reached world class success,” Maisch remarked.
The goal is not to exceed 10 inductees each year.
Eligibility requirements include that the athlete graduate from Kingston and attend at least two years prior to graduation. An athlete is eligible 10 years after graduation and coaches, administrators and supporters five years after they end their service to the school. A whole team may be nominated after 15 years.
Anyone may nominate a candidate by filling out a form. It is available at www.kingstoncityschools.org/halloffame or call (845) 943-3737 to have a form mailed to you.
Nominations for the inaugural class will close April 1, 2017 and will be announced on Aug. 1.
