RVC Athletics Hall of Fame seeks nominations

Staff Report

The Rock Valley College (RVC) Athletics Department is seeking nominations for consideration for induction into the RVC Athletics Hall of Fame.

Criteria for induction varies based on the category of nominee (athlete, coach, team, etc.) but includes involvement in sports, dedication to RVC, athletic successes, number of years at RVC, and contributions to the community or career accomplishments earned after leaving RVC. Nominees must be five years removed from RVC.

Nominations are due by Nov. 15. To nominate someone, go online to rockvalleycollege.edu/AthleticsHOF.

Each inductee and their family will be invited to attend the annual Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Friday, Jan. 23, 2015, and the inductees will also be honored the next afternoon Saturday, Jan. 24, at halftime of the men’s basketball game versus College of DuPage.

The RVC Athletics Hall of Fame was established in 2013 with the induction of six former coaches who were instrumental in starting the athletics program at the college: Chuck Behrends, Geraldine E. “Gerry” McDermott, Norm Matzl, Pete Lonsway, Ed Delaporte III and Heidi Hutchison.

Call Frank Horvat at (815) 921-3842 for more details.
