North High Administration
Chair: Dr. Paul Devin, Principal
Nominations must be submitted to:
Polar Bear Partners
North High School Hall of Fame Committee
c/o 501 Holcomb Avenue
Des Moines, IA 50313
Nominations are due with cut-off date of January 2, 2011. Exception was for the year 2010, and the cut-off date was January 30, 2010. Nominees/candidates must have graduated from North High School. Nominations can be carried for one additional year and reconsidered a second year as well.
For the initial year of 1987, ten nominees/candidates were inducted. For every year since 1987, voting for a maximum of four nominees has occurred and those four have been designated for induction. Yearly a selection of bios of nominees is sent to existing living members of the North High Hall of Fame who are asked to vote on a designated number of candidates, not to exceed four in any single year, for selection of the incoming inductees for that calendar year. On occasion, there has been only one inducted, and sometimes none is inducted. Notification of inductee selection follows with induction usually occurring at North High's All-School Reunion held in early May of that year or at a selected North High assembly or event.
