01 Apr Navarro College to create ‘Bulldog Hall of Fame’
CORSICANA, TX – Navarro College is excited to announce the organization of the Bulldog Hall of Fame, honoring its former student-athletes, coaches, teams and supporters who have enriched the legacy of the institution through intercollegiate athletics. This takes a major step in celebrating and recognizing those who have exhibited exceptional ability and performance in their selected field of athletics and have represented Navarro College in an exemplary manner.
Nominations for the inaugural Bulldog Hall of Fame class can be found at athletics.navarrocollege.edu and will be accepted through May 5, 2019. “We have a rich history with our Bulldog athletic programs, and this is a great opportunity for us to honor those individuals who have helped to build our tradition,” said Michael Landers, Athletic Director.
The inaugural class will celebrate its induction at the Bulldog Hall of Fame Luncheon at the Cook Education Center on Saturday, September 28, 2019. Inductees will receive “Bulldog Red” blazers and plaques commemorating their induction. They will also be introduced and honored at halftime of Navarro’s football game at Tiger Stadium the same day. A special Hall of Fame room will be established at the Corsicana campus and all inductees’ names will be commemorated.
To be considered for induction, a nominee’s eligibility will be based upon participation for at least one year as an intercollegiate athlete, five years as a coach, or 10 years as an active supporter of NC athletics. Candidates will be screened on athletic accomplishments at Navarro and beyond, service to NC and its athletics program, professional achievements, personal integrity and service to the community.
Nomination submissions will be accepted from any current or former student, employee or any member of the public. Forms will be available on the Navarro College Athletics website, from the Athletics Department and the Alumni Association until May 5, 2019.
The Bulldog Hall of Fame Selection committee will include members of the Athletic Department, other members from Navarro College and community members.
