HOF Nomination Form

HALL OF FAME CRITERIA AND NOMINATION FORM

 

            The Bensalem High School Hall of Fame was conceived by Dr. James I. Bardsley, Jr. in 1967. He proposed that the Bensalem High School Sports Association, Inc. endeavor to establish a lasting tribute to those athletes who contributed their time, talents, dedications, and self-discipline to the athletic program of Bensalem High School.

 

            The Sports Association unanimously approved the Hall of Fame concept. The Hall of Fame became a reality in 1968. Unfortunately, no one was inducted between 1976 and 1985.

 

            In September of 1986, a new committee was formed at the suggestion of high school, district, and community people who were eager to revive the Hall of Fame.

 

            From that committee grew the idea that not only athletes, but also coaches and private citizens who significantly contributed to the high school athletic program were worthy of recognition. The criterion for each group is as follows:

 

Criteria 1: Outstanding Athletes of Bensalem High School

  • Nominated at least five years after graduation
  • Demonstrated outstanding school citizenship, was a student in good standing, etc.
  • Selected to the Suburban 1 First Team, Golden Team, District Team, State Team, etc.
  • Met and/or exceeded eligibility requirements of P.I.A.A.

 

Criteria 2: Former Outstanding Athletic Coaches of Bensalem High School

  • Nominated at least five years after resigning or retiring
  • Demonstrated concern for academic as well as athletic standards
  • Demonstrated outstanding records of performance

 

Criteria 3: Distinguished Long-Term Service to Bensalem Athletic Programs

  • Twenty-five years minimum of long, distinguished service to our school community
 

 

Names are continually being sought for consideration for induction. Please feel free to complete the appropriate forms and submit them to: Jessica Ody   3419 Hulmeville Rd. Bensalem, PA 19020   OR email to jody@bensalemsd.org
