Hall of Fame Nomination Rules and Procedures
Each year a total of no more than five (5) people will be inducted into the Alpena High School Hall of Fame. In the event that not enough qualified candidates are nominated during a particular year, fewer than three (3) candidates may be inducted that year.
At least ten (10) years must have passed before a graduate can be considered for membership into the Hall of Fame.
Nomination forms will be made available to the public. They will be available in the main office of the Alpena High School or can be downloaded by clicking the link at the bottom of this page.
Nominations must be made in writing by anyone 18 years old or older. The completed nomination forms must be turned in to the AHS Main Office, 3303 S. Third Street, Alpena, Michigan by April 15.
The information included on the nomination forms will be verified as much as possible by the selection committee.
Alumni Selection Process
The AHS Main Office will provide each committee member with nomination forms, background data provided with the application, and a biographical sketch for each nominee prior to the selection committee meeting. The committee will meet prior to June 30 for discussion and inductee selection.
In the voting process, there will be two (2) votes, taken. In the initial vote, each member will vote for five (5) candidates to narrow down the field. The five (5) candidates with the most votes will then be voted upon a second time. Each committee member will then vote for three (3) candidates. The three (3) nominees with the most votes will then receive the AHS Alumni Hall of Fame award. However, in order to receive this award, each candidate must have a minimum number of six (6) votes.
Once a candidate is nominated, their name will be reconsidered for a period of three (3) years; the year submitted plus the two (2) subsequent years. If the candidate has not been selected, they can then be re-nominated at the end of that term.
Following the selection, inductees will be notified of their successful nomination. The inductees will be expected to respond that they accept the honor and plan to attend the festivities.
Selection of inductees will occur annually.
Recognition of Hall of Fame Inductees
Each inductee will receive a plaque in honor of his/her accomplishments presented at the homecoming football game.
Each inductee will have his/her name added to the AHS Alumni Hall of Fame.
A permanent plaque recognizing each inductee will be added to the AHS Alumni Hall of Fame display at Alpena High School.
