School district seeks hall of fame nominations

Nominations for the 2013 Forest Lake Area School District Hall of Fame and the Forest Lake Area High School Arts & Athletics Hall of Fame are being accepted.

The District Hall of Fame was started in 2011. Inductees include former students, teachers, volunteers, administrators, school board members and people from the Forest Lake area who have contributed over the years to the success of the school district.

The Arts & Athletics Hall of Fame is an expansion of the high school’s Athletics Hall of Fame, which was started in the 1980s and then revitalized in 2012 with new inductees. Former students who participated in arts-related activities such as music, speech, debate and other Minnesota State High School League sanctioned activities – and their coaches and advisors – are now eligible for induction. Former athletes and coaches are also expected to be inducted again this year.

As part of the hall of fame celebration, a reception is once again planned. This year it will be held on the evening of Tuesday, June 4 at Forest Hills Golf Club in Forest Lake. This event, sponsored by TEFFLA (The Education Foundation of Forest Lake), will feature current and recent inductees from both halls of fame as well as other notable guests.
