Deadline nearing for submitting Hall of Fame nominations


Nomination deadline is almost here -- Monday, July 1


COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- There's just one week remaining before the deadline for fans, alumni, friends and supporters to submit names as nominees for the Tennessee Tech Sports Hall of Fame. The deadline each year is June 30, and this year will be extended to Monday, July 1. To be considered for 2013 induction, nominations must be submitted by July 1.

"Our Sports Hall of Fame currently includes nearly 160 people, and every year the committee looks through a long list of qualified nominees," said Mark Wilson, Director of Athletics. "Many of these nominations come from family members, friends, alumni or fans who know of candidates who are worthy of consideration but have not been nominated or selected."

Each nomination remains active for a period of three years. The committee will meet later in the summer to select the 2013 nominees who will be inducted during the annual Hall of Fame Dinner during Homecoming weekend, October 25-26.

For additional information on submitting nominations, please contact Amanda Thatcher at (931) 372-3949.
