GAHS Athletic HOF committee
picks a date for 2012 ceremonies
There will be a 11th Gallia Academy Athletic Hall of Fame class and it will be held the weekend of Sept. 28-29.
Twelve HOF committee members made that decision during a meeting at GAHS on Thursday, July 26.
Tom Meadows, first president and prime organizer of the HOF over a decade ago volunteered to head this yearâ€™s event for one year. He will succeed outgoing president Rusty Saunders.
Other 2012-13 HOF officers will be Tom Young, vice president, Randy Finney secretary and Lori Young, treasurer.
The HOF committee has usually selected nominees by the first of July and set a date for their induction, but because the group had no meetings this spring or early summer, it looked like there would be no class in 2012.
New HOF members will be introduced prior to the home football game against Southeastern Ohio Athletic League foe Chillicothe on Friday, Sept. 28.
The new inductees will be treated to a dinner on Saturday, Sept. 29, in the GAHS cafeteria at Centenary. They will also be presented plaques following the annual banquet. The Park Front CafÃ© will cater this yearâ€™s banquet.
A list of potential candidates is on file in the reference room at the Bossard Memorial Library. Committee members were asked to go to the library and review the list, which contains 18 holdovers and three new nominations that were submitted to the group on July 26.
After committee members review current nominations, they will take a vote during the groupâ€™s next meeting, to be held on Thursday, Aug. 9, at 5:15 p.m., in the GAHS cafeteria at Centenary.
Attending the Jul 26 meeting were Roger Mace, superintendent; Tim Massie, principal; Jim Osborne, Brent Saunders, Tom Meadows, Tom Morgan, Hobart Wilson, Jr., John Milhoan, Tom Young, Lori Young Randy Finny, Renee Halley and guest Richard (Dick) Moore.
