Athletic Hall of Fame brochure cover

The purpose of the Pennington School Athletic Hall of Fame is to recognize and honor those student athletes and other members of the community whose athletic accomplishments have been of the highest caliber and have brought credit to the School.

Structure of the Selection Committee

Permanent members of the selection committee are the Athletic Director, the Director of Alumni Relations, and a School trustee. The Headmaster is a member ex officio. Appointed for a two-year term will be a member of the alumni association board of directors, a School administrator, and a faculty member. The Director of Alumni Relations will chair the committee.

Criteria for Selection

Nominees become eligible ten years after graduation, after fifteen years of service to the School, or under special circumstances. The Hall of Fame recognizes alumni, teams, and coaches.

Alumni nominees should have demonstrated a sustained interest in the School between graduation and nomination.

Alumni nominees must have been letter winners whose athletic accomplishments represent the highest caliber of achievement of their time.

Selection will be based primarily on athletic accomplishments while at Pennington. Subsequent achievements in athletics and other areas such as service to community and country are significant considerations. The selection committee seeks to honor those who displayed exceptional athletic ability or great achievements in coaching and who continue to lead a life that embodies the values of the School.

Deceased candidates are eligible for posthumous nomination.
