Applications will be kept on file for five years. By keeping all nominations we will be able to reconsider worthy people who were not selected previously. After five years a person may be re-nominated.
All nominations will be submitted to LEISD by May 31 of each year leaving ample time to locate inductees, order name plates, order plaques, obtain pictures and memorabilia.
Inductees will be announced each year during home coming football game.
Induction ceremony will be held at home basketball game (location of Wall of Fame). It gives more people an opportunity to be actively involved.
Selection of and induction onto the Wall of Fame may be limited to five individuals per year because the induction needs to be something special and we don't want to fill up all the available space in the first few years.
Memorabilia will be displayed in the lobby area of the Rader Dome, the media center, and the hallways of both campuses.
