Nominations are currently being sought from the public for inclusion in the Mount Ayr Community Schools Hall of Fame.
Nomination forms are available online www.mtayrschools.org and in the Superintendent’s office.
Once submitted, nominations remain active in perpetuity and will be reviewed by the selection committee each year.
Please note that the selection committee encourages and appreciates nominations that include substantial information about the nominee, as well as supporting documentation.
The announcement of the new induction class is made on Foundation Night, which typically occurs at the last Friday night home basketball game (late January or early February).
The Hall of Fame banquet and Induction ceremony is held annually in conjunction with the Homecoming celebration at the school.
The Mount Ayr Community Schools Hall of Fame was established in 2012 to create a lasting tribute to groups and individuals who have brought honor to themselves, their school, and their communities.
The Mount Ayr Community School Hall of Fame was created to honor graduates, employees, teams, individuals, and friends of the Mount Ayr Community School for their accomplishments and/or service to the Mount Ayr Community School, and also to inspire our students to become the best that they can be.
The phrase “Mount Ayr Community School” refers to all of the schools that are now part of the Mount Ayr district. The committee welcomes nominations related to schools such as, but not limited to, Beaconsfield, Benton, Clearfield, Delphos, Ellston, Kellerton, Grand River, Grand Valley, Maloy, Redding, and Tingley.
In addition, the Hall of Fame is NOT merely an athletic Hall of Fame.
It exists to recognize students involved in ALL extracurricular activities at school, ALL alumni that earn distinction beyond graduation, as well as ALL staff and supporters of the school.
Current members of the Hall of Fame include Dr. Peggy Whitson, Anna Mae Kobbe, Brent Geringer, Dawn Huff Elliott, Jack and Mildred Dixon Elliott, Vance Geiger, Larry Hunter, Joe McNeill, Dave Still, Maurice Carr, Lori Sickels Friedman, Ron Landphair, 1988 Girls Track Team, Orr Fisher, David McDaniel, Dr. Bruce and Michell Holmes Ricker, Ron Scott, Raymond Baker, Larry Giles, Mark Larsen, Chet Roed, the 1963 football team, Carey Crowson, Duane Miller and Jerry Waugh.
