East Central School is pleased to announce its annual Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony to be held on Sunday, May 21th. This is the opportunity for people to nominate former graduates of our school and our school’s heritage schools. This list would include Bruno, Askov, Sandstone, and East Central. We are seeking nominations of individuals who have contributed to our world in a significant way.
The Mission Statement reads:
It is our goal to recognize Sandstone, Askov, East Central students that have distinguished themselves by their contributions in their field of work/study, to their individual communities, and to society as a whole. By providing these positive role models to our current students, they will understand the positive impact ECHS has made on individuals from our community in the past. This inspiration will provide hope and relevance to our current students in their area of studies as well as extra-curricular opportunities.
The Hall Of Fame program is under the direction of the National Honor Society at East Central. The NHS recognizes students of excellence, academically and philanthropically. The Hall of Fame serves to recognize these strengths and accomplishments in past graduates.
A committee of area volunteers and EC personnel will review all nominations and then select submissions for the Hall of Fame Induction. We are seeking nominations for individuals who have excelled in their professional life. We also are seeking those individuals who have been generous in their giving and volunteering. There are many who have served their country in the military achieving great recognition as well. These individuals may be awarded this honor post-humously as well. The 2016 Hall of Fame inductees included: Fred Konrath (Sandstone, 1961) and Frank Loken (Sandstone, 1959).
We encourage all to consider submitting a nomination for someone you know who has been a good example in life. They must be a graduate of East Central or its predecessing schools.
