The Ponca City High School Hall of Fame committee will meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24, at the Board of Education.
Rich Cantillon will welcome guests before reviewing the nomination form and the formation of the selection committee.
An Induction Ceremony is planned for Thursday, Sept. 28, at the Carolyn Renfro Event Center
In notes from the first meeting, held in December, Cantillon said the committee plans to induct five to 10 alumni in the first year.
Those who attended the first meeting set up preliminary criteria for inductees in to the hall, including:
- The inductee does not have to be living.
- Depending on the circumstances the inductee may not have actually graduated from Po-Hi and could still be inducted if they attended Po-Hi.
Cantillon agreed to put together a nomination form for everyone to review at Thursday’s meeting.
All donations for the Hall of Fame will be run through the school system.
The class of 1954 will sponsor the meals for the first inductee families.
Plans include raising funds for scholarships, Cantillon said.
“We already have a $1,000 donation toward our project, and we will work with Ball Trophy on a unique gift for each inductee,” he said. “We do want to hang all inductee photos at Po-Hi with a brief description of what they have done.”
Cantillon said various committees will be formed, including a Program Committee to work out the details for the installation banquet; Selection Committee to make the selection of the inductees and and Award Committee to decide what will be given to each inductee.
