Cullowhee, N.C. - Nominations for the 2011 Western Carolina University Athletic Hall of Fame are currently being accepted until Friday, March 4, 2011. WCU will induct its 22nd class all-time next fall during a home Catamount football weekend (TBA).
Criteria for nomination into the WCU Athletic Hall of Fame include having distinguished himself/herself through outstanding contributions while representing Western Carolina University as a student-athlete, coach or associate of the Athletic Department. A minimum of five (5) years must have elapsed since the student-athletes participated at the University or since the association with the Athletic Department has ended, with the only exception coming by way of a posthumous award.
The WCU Athletics Hall of Fame committee will meet during the spring to select the 2011 class with final review and approval by Chancellor John W. Bardo. Once the class is approved, the 2011 Hall of Fame class will be announced during the summer leading into the fall semester.
