Nominations for 2017 Induction Year Are Open Until November 1, 2016
The Athletics Committee of the Phillips Academy Alumni Council is accepting nominations for the 2017 induction year of the Hall of Honor until November 1, 2016. The Hall recognizes alumni, teams and coaches from Phillips and Abbot academies that displayed exceptional athletic ability on the field and who continued to lead lives that embody the values of the academies. "It would be difficult to overstate the importance of athletics in shaping the character of young men and women as they pass through our halls and go on to lead lives of significance and achievement. The Hall of Honor seeks to permanently acknowledge those among us whose accomplishments in athletics have been uniquely notable," says Doug D'Agata '88, co-chair of the committee. He and co-chair Meredith Hudson Johnston '01 manage the nomination and evaluation process of inductees.
Nominations are solicited annually, with eventual inductees recognized during Reunion Weekend each year. In addition to the Athletics Committee, the selection process includes members of the Athletics Department and the Office of Alumni Engagement. A permanent plaque featuring the name of each inductee is displayed in the Borden Gym.
