Dear Menaul Alum,
As we celebrate this very special 125th year here at Menaul, we invite you to participate in this year’s Homecoming activities, one of which is the traditional vote for our Panther Hall of Fame Award.
This award has been given to student athletes, coaches, administrators, and teams. The award honors not only outstanding athletic achievement but continued service to Menaul School athletics as well. The award will be presented at halftime of our Homecoming game on October 23, 2021.
Below is a description of the Selection Criteria, the Selection Process, and a listing of the award winners since the inception of the award in 1987.
We are asking alumni who want to participate to complete this on-line survey by Monday, October 11th by noon, so that our Selection Committee can make their decisions next week.
Please be sure to indicate why you are nominating an individual by listing their outstanding athletic accomplishments as well as evidence of their long-term service and leadership at Menaul School.
