+ click to enlarge

NW GUILFORD - Northwest Guilford High School Athletics Department wants to honor deserving athletes, coaches and others who have had significant achievements and made contributions to the school's athletics department.

Under the direction of the school's athletics director, Jason Allred, a board was recently formed to create an Athletics Hall of Fame. Board members consist of Allred, principal Ashley Young and assistant principal John Hughes (the school's former athletics director); coach Ron Bare and former coaches Darlene Joyner and Sandy Gann; community members with tie-ins to NWHS athletics, including Ralph Kitley, Tim Frazier, Vernon McHam and Charlies Groves; and Patti Stokes, editor/owner of the Northwest Observer.

Candidates for the Athletics Hall of Fame will be selected from three categories: athlete, coach and contributor.

Nominees for the athlete category will be eligible for consideration after four years of graduation from NWHS. An eligible coach can be active, retired or deceased. A contributor is an individual who has helped develop and grow the athletic department at NWHS and has had a significant impact on the NWHS athletic community.

There will be no set number of inductees each year, but it will not exceed 15.

All nominees must be considered "of high moral character and value," have significant connections to NWHS, and may be living or deceased. Athlete nominees should have excelled in athletics while at NWHS and potentially beyond high school. All coach nominees must have served as a varsity head coach at NWHS for at least seven years.

Each year's Hall of Fame inductees will be announced at a home football game in the fall and honored with a ceremony at a home basketball game in the winter.

Anyone wishing to nominate a candidate for consideration is asked to complete a form that outlines the candidate's athletic achievements and contributions, as well as offers examples of what makes the candidate an outstanding person of moral character.

Nomination forms will be due no later than Oct. 1 of the year in which the candidate is to be considered.
