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.
