Hall of Fame
It is our goal to recognize Sandstone, Askov and 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 areas of studies as well as extra-curricular opportunities.
Each year the Hall of Fame committee will induct up to five members to the Hall. The initial induction class will be twelve; four graduates from each of the schools.
Alumni/Former Student Contribution: This category will honor former students of Sandstone, Askov and East Central Schools for their contribution to society, for their academic achievements, and for enhancing the reputation of our school. Former students must have been a Sandstone, Askov or East Central student for at least two years and graduated from one of the three schools. These nominees must be 25 years of age to qualify for the Hall of Fame.
** The Hall of Fame board has the right to waive qualification standards for nominees by unanimous vote. The Hall of Fame will induct individuals posthumously.
There is a wide range of candidates for the Hall of Fame. The committee will make the final decision on the number of inductees, and on the reasoning of choice. The Hall of Fame is not established to exclude individuals, but to honor them. Therefore, any induction choice will be considered appropriate.
Nomination forms will be available on the school website and in the office. Anyone may submit a nomination form. All nominees must meet the category listed above. A nomination form will be good for two years. Download nomination form in a PDF format.
Hall of Fame committee
The committee has five voting members. Each committee member serves for four years. The initial committee will have two members that serve for three years, two that serve for four years to begin the rotation. Applications to the committee will be generated by newspaper and website. It will be preferred to have two members from each town (Sandstone/Askov). Interested parties will be reviewed by student council and reviewed and approved by school board. The principal, or his/her designee, will serve as a non-voting member of the committee. In addition, one staff member from the school will serve as the final voting member. The school will house the history of applications and nominations.
Each board member will review the nomination forms. At the first session, each board member will select five nominations for the board to review. From this session, the board will take the selected nominations for deeper review. At a second session, the board will discuss and vote for selections to the Hall of Fame.
Hall of Fame
The Hall of Fame plaques will be located in the hallways of the school. These plaques will be designed and fabricated by the Industrial Technology classroom. Inductees will be given a certificate, and a plaque will be placed on the hallway. The hallway plaque will include year of induction, a graduation photo, the graduation year, school and their degree. There will be a brief recognition event held in conjunction with a school event.
The committee has the right to rescind Hall of Fame status at any time.
