NORTH HARDIN ATHLETICS HALL OF FAME
The Hall of Fame is organized to maintain the rich heritage and tradition of the successful athletic programs at North Hardin High School. In addition, it will serve as a means of recognizing, preserving and honoring the athletes, coaches and individuals who have made significant contributions to the athletic programs, other than the afore mentioned ways.
Many individuals have been influential in the Trojan "Tradition of Excellence" and have had exemplary accomplishments on the athletic fields and courts. The Hall of Fame honors the contributions and accomplishments of these individuals who are worthy of recognition as examples for others to emulate.
The Hall of Fame selection committee accepted nominees through May 1 in four categories – athlete, alumnus/alumna, coach and contributor. Up to 10 individuals will be selected each year.
The Hall of Fame committee plans to have its yearly induction ceremony following a home football game each school year.
