Committee member Brian Fleming, a 1980 graduate from the school outlined the induction process. “Based on the nominations that were submitted, we selected a combination of some individuals from the past and some more familiar names from more recent years.”
Fleming pointed out that once a nomination is submitted, it remains under consideration by the board for future years. “Simply because a nominee or nominees weren’t selected this year doesn’t mean they weren’t deserving and won’t be voted on for future induction. Our committee has agreed to place limitations on annual selection numbers and all nominees will continue to be considered and included in all ongoing discussions. We are blending the past with the present as we consider all nominees.”
According to the committee Mission Statement, the intent of the Wall of Fame project is to “recognize those who have brought distinction to Notre Dame through their leadership, participation and support. The Wall of Fame has been created to honor exemplary teams and individuals as a lasting tribute to those who have brought honor to themselves, their school, their teams and their community.”
The voting committee consists of two former varsity coaches, two current varsity coaches, two members of the ND community and the Activities Director.
The Wall of Fame display with mounted plaques is located in the hallway between Father Minnett Gymnasium and the Nike Elementary gym. The school honored championship teams only in its inaugural installment and will continue to induct individuals and teams with diverse contributions and accomplishments in the future.
