Todd County High Schools’ Hall of Fame plan

presented to Todd County Board of Education

Elkton, Kentucky – May 9, 2016

Todd County High Schools’ Hall of Fame is scheduled to become a reality during the coming school year, planners told the Todd County Board of Education Monday.

Mr. Fred Harper, chairman of a committee developing the Hall of Fame, told Board of Education members that the committee had agreed unanimously on several key items. First, the Hall of Fame will honor graduates not only of Todd County Central High School, but also of all the county high schools that operated before the 1963 consolidation into Todd Central.

Second, Harper said the committee was also unanimous in its decision to make the Hall of Fame for academic and other achievement, as well as athletic achievement. The committee was charged by school district officials last year as an autonomous panel to develop the Hall of Fame. The committee is made up of former Todd County students and community members.

Harper, a Todd Central alumnus and former head coach and principal, told school board members that the Hall’s charter states:

“The Todd County High Schools’ Hall of Fame has been established to recognize alumni and staff of the Todd County High Schools who have made significant achievements in their chosen fields or professional services and made noteworthy contributions to society on a local, national or international level. The recognition of alumni who have become outstanding citizens will provide current students with positive role models in their own lives.”

The committee is seeking nominees for the first group to be inducted into the Hall at a banquet to be scheduled during the coming school year. Anyone can nominate an individual for the Hall. Nomination forms, as well as more information about the Hall, can be obtained by contacting Fred Harper at fred.harper21@yahoo.com or by calling him at 270-265-3687.

Attached below are two additional PDF forms that you may need to nominate someone.
