North High School Alumni Athletic Hall of Fame
* = deceased; x = induction year unknown
For nomination to the North High Athletes Hall of Fame, the candidate must:
1.Have graduated from North High prior to nomination
2.Have been an All-State First or Second Team selection or
3.Have won a State Championship or have been a Runner-up or
4. Have held a State or National Record or
5.Have been named a High School All-American or
6.Have, after graduation, earned National, State, Collegiate, or other special recognition for achievement in athletics or
7.Have been employed as a member of the North High Coaching Staff or
8.Have been voted in by majority of the members, in good standing, of the NHS Coaches Association for outstanding contributions to North High athletics
9. Example: in 1994 there was a smaller number of inductees. This is the result of a wider range of votes having been cast. Each coach votes for eight candidates. A candidate must receive a majority of the votes cast to be elected. This year the votes were spread out among so many candidates only three received enough votes to be elected.
10. History: The official induction ceremonies for the inaugural group of athletes into the North High "Athletes Hall of Fame" took place at the Fort Des Moines Hotel in Independence Hall on Saturday, May 6, 1989 at 1:30pm. The initial list of inductees numbered 48.
11. Nomination may be made by any current faculty member or coach, any former faculty member or coach, or any North High alumnus.
12. Nominations may be made at any time, and all nominations will be kept on file for future consideration.
