HENDERSONVILLE, NC (December 8, 2015) – Less than three weeks remain in the nomination period for candidates to be considered for induction into the Henderson County Education Hall of Fame.  Nominations of candidates for inclusion in the 2016 Hall of Fame Class and required supporting materials must be submitted to the Foundation by December 31, 2015.

Since 2003, the Henderson County Education Foundation has honored over 115 teachers, administrators, support staff, school board members, and donors with induction into the Hall.  One of only five education halls of fame in North Carolina, the HCEF Hall of Fame provides an opportunity for special recognition of the men and women who have led Henderson County’s focus on educational excellence for decades.

As Hall of Fame records indicate, honorees have shown “measurable influence or made significant contributions to the growth and development of education in Henderson County.”  Members of the Hall are honored in a beautiful display at the Central Office of the Henderson County Public Schools (HCPS) located at 414 4th Avenue West.  The “Wall of Fame” is open to the public during HCPS business hours.

Detailed guidelines for nominations, supporting documents, and selection criteria can be found at hcefnc.org/education-hall-of-fame/.  Those selected for induction in the 2016 class will be announced on February 15, 2016 and honored at Education Celebration 2016, scheduled for Thursday evening, April 21, 2016, at Blue Ridge Community College.
