MONTVILLE, NJ -- The Montville Township High School Hall of Fame Committee is seeking nominees for its 2017 induction class.
The MTHS Hall of Fame is open to graduates of Montville High School based on their achievements in high school, college, and/or careers. There is also the category of contributor, which is for a person who has worked at MTHS, and has been retired for a minimum of one year.
For team eligibility, all team members must have graduated high school. The term “team” is not restricted to athletic teams, but can also be used for forensics teams, marching band field corps, debate teams and robotics teams. Most if not all of the members must be mentioned on the nomination form.
“As always, we need nominations for alumni who have distinguished themselves and represent the best values of Montville Township High School,” said Hall of Fame Committee President Daniel O’Brien. “I thought the class inducted last year was simply amazing. There were so many individuals who achieved so much in high school and in their professional careers. I was also very proud to induct the first millennial into the Hall of Fame, and I look forward to inducting many more during my term as president.”
“What is more important is a list of their accomplishments in high school as well as their professional accomplishments,” O’Brien said. “There's no particular amount of weight given to one set of accomplishments or another; we look at each nomination individually. So while someone may have had a rather undistinguished high school career, but really distinguishes themselves professionally upon graduation, they give more weight to post-high school activities.”
Nomination forms are due by April 3, 2017. The Hall of Fame induction dinner will be held on November 17, 2017.
The nomination form can be returned to: MTHS Hall of Fame Nominating Committee c⁄o Mary Gormley, Montville Township High School, 100 Horseneck Rd., Montville, NJ 07045 or MTHSHallOfFame@gmail.com
