Gallatin High School, despite its long history, has not had a Hall of Fame for athletics – until now.
The school announced Friday that it is establishing the Hall of Fame to honor outstanding former student-athletes, coaches, administrators, teams and other contributors to Green Wave sports.
A committee has already been set up to accept nominations and determine members to be inducted on an annual basis.
“The Athletic Hall of Fame is a great way to pay tribute to those men and women who have represented this school and community,” Gallatin athletic director Phillip Sanders said. “It is the ultimate form of recognition for the greatest players, coaches and contributors to Gallatin High School’s success through the past 100-plus years.”
Beginning on Monday, the school’s website, greenwaveathletics.com, will begin accepting nomination forms. Those forms will be accepted through Oct. 1. The committee will then meet to select the Class of 2017, which will be announced at Gallatin’s final home football game on Oct. 28.
The induction ceremony will take place at a home basketball game in early January, with the exact date to be announced.
