Nominees sought for Plainfield District 202 Alumni Hall of Fame

The Plainfield Foundation for Excellence is accepting nominations for the ninth annual induction into its Alumni Hall of Fame.

The Alumni Hall of Fame honors District 202 graduates who have distinguished themselves beyond their high school years through their significant accomplishments or service.

The Foundation for Excellence created the Hall of Fame in 2011 as part of its work to promote achievement and excellence for District 202 students.

Nominees must have graduated from a District 202 high school at least 20 years prior to nomination, or from the Plainfield High School, which preceded the formation of District 202. This requirement may be waived for candidates who entered military service prior to their graduation or for other special circumstances.

Nominees should have significant accomplishments and/or community service recognized as outstanding through the receipt of awards, honors or other forms of distinction. They should also have made a profound and positive international, national, regional or local impact on their chosen field or community.

Nomination for candidates will also be accepted in certain categories: Arts and Entertainment, Business and Commerce, Community Service and Volunteerism, Education and Humanities, Government and Military, Medicine and Health, Philanthropy and Non-profit, Science and Technology and Sports and Recreation.

The Hall of Fame class of 2018 had four members, including Barbara Barrows, Class of 1978; Jean Brannen, Class of 1974; Jennifer Kelsall, Class of 1989; and Eric Munson, Class of 1987.

Nomination forms are available on the Foundation for Excellence website.

Nominations must be received by Jan. 11, 2019.
