Athletic Hall of Fame
The Gardner Edgerton High School Athletic Hall of Fame is a tribute to outstanding athletes who through their athletic achievements have brought honor to themselves, school, and community. The purpose of the Athletic Hall of Fame is to:
- Recognize and honor the great athletes who have brought fame to Gardner Edgerton High School;
- Establish a motivating influence in the hearts of our youth; and,
- Foster pride and preserve good sportsmanship, scholarship, and citizenship in our school, city, and community.
Thoroughly read the Athletic Hall of Fame Regulations and Procedures. Nominations can only be made by or through a former or current coach, athletic director, or principal. This nomination form must be accompanied with a letter of recommendation from the person making the nomination.
