For the first time since 2011, the Liberty Wall of Fame has changed its rules regarding the induction criteria. The Wall of Fame selection committee has eliminated the option to induct community and staff members. Instead, the Liberty Wall of Fame will solely recognize distinguished alumni.
Beginning July 2016, the Wall of Fame selection committee will no longer accept or review nomination forms for community or staff members.
The changes are the result of an extensive review of the nomination process that was established in 2011. The review included an evaluation of the nomination system and criteria.
“As a school district that strives to instill the concepts of achievement and excellence in our students, [the Wall of Fame selection committee] felt that an alumni-only Wall of Fame would illustrate what our students may attain through hard work and commitment,” Assistant Superintendent Carol Napolitano said.
The new process will begin in July 2016, when the new nomination forms will be released.
