Help decide the 2014 Hall of Fame Class for MCHS Athletics

By Thomas Sellers Jr.

Trojan hall of fame 2014 Last July Millington Central High School Assistant Principal Beth Hale announced the beginning of the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame. Hale and a panel of community leaders formed the criteria and later in 2013 the first 12 inductees were announced.

Last November the inaugural class of Tommy Harrison, Bobbie Percer Sr., Chris Michael, Nancy Norwood, David Terrell, Mooney Boswell, Rex Waits, 1928 Girls’ Basketball Team, Gordon Wilson, Jake “JC” Carter and the 1962 Football Team were inducted. It’s time for the second class of Hall of Famers and the MCHS administration wants the public’s help once again.

The public can submit nominees for the 2014 Hall of Fame Class. Once the pool of candidates is gathered, the school will have a committee review all the nomination from the public. All committee members are appointed by the administration of MCHS for a two-year term and maybe reappointed by the principal – the committee should have minimum 7 community members and 2 school representatives and no more than 11 community members and five school representatives. The first class featured 12 inductees. The original plan was for years 2-10 to have about 5 inductees each year. Then after 10 years no more than 2 per year.
