A committee of citizens, students, faculty and administrators will select the inductee from nominations submitted by members of the public. Nominating forms are available in the Niskayuna High School Office, 1626 Balltown Road, the School District Office, 1239 Van Antwerp Road and the Town Supervisor's Office at Town Hall, One Niskayuna Circle or at the link above. Completed forms must be returned to the High School principal no later than Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
According to High School Principal, John W. Rickert, "The Niskayuna High School Hall of Fame honors graduates who have distinguished themselves in a specific field of endeavor, in civic affairs, humanitarian affairs, or other areas deemed to merit special recognition."
"It is our hope," Mr. Rickert added, "that today's students see in these inductees, people worthy of emulation. We believe the Hall of Fame program contributes to our positive school climate, and brings our community together in sharing the successes of our native sons and daughters."
Formal induction into the Hall of Fame will be held at the High School commencement exercises on June 22 at Proctors Theater. The plaque with an etched photograph of the Hall of Fame member with a brief biographical description will be permanently housed in the Hall of Fame area at the main entrance area of Niskayuna High School.
Niskayuna's Hall of Fame was instituted as part of the school's 25th anniversary in 1983.
