Oredocker Hall of Fame
Wonderful things happen in Ashland schools all the time - Students do amazing academic and co-curricular work; teachers and other district employees inspire our children to recognize their potential; athletes and coaches win, lose and grow together; community members generously support the youth of our district; and alumni accomplish greatness in their chosen professions, just to name a few. To recognize and celebrate these things, the school board recently voted to create two halls of fame and approved guidelines for naming school district facilities.
The district will create an Achievement Hall of Fame and an Athletic Hall of Fame beginning next school year. Nominations for these awards will be taken immediately. Anyone can nominate a person to be considered for either hall of fame. The nomination forms can be found on the district website: www.ashland.k12.wi.us. Complete nominations will include one completed nomination form and three letters of recommendation. Completed nominations will be reviewed by a committee of school and community members.
The Athletic Hall of Fame nominations are due February 28, 2014 for consideration for induction in the fall of 2014. The induction ceremony will take place as part of the Homecoming week celebration. The Achievement Hall of Fame nominations are due next September 31, 2014 for a spring induction ceremony. The Achievement Hall of Fame is designed to recognize all achievements and contributions that are not associated with athletics. This might include the performing arts, other co-curricular events, academic accomplishments or community contributions to the School District of Ashland. Both halls of fame will be proudly displayed in the Ashland High School commons area.
The school board also approved guidelines for naming of facilities in our district. Nominations for naming of facilities would be forwarded to any school board member. The school board would determine the viability of the request and gather community feedback on the nomination. The school board is ultimately responsible for naming any district facility.
The goal for these recognition opportunities is to celebrate outstanding achievements and contributions of anyone associated with the Ashland schools. We hope that this will lead to greater pride in our great school district and inspire others to greatness.
