The athletics department of Genesee Community College will be accepting GCC Athletics Hall of Fame nominees until April 1, 2018 for the next enshrinement class that includes not only former athletes, but also teams and individuals who have made a noteworthy contribution to GCC athletics.
While selection as a contributor can be considered in a multitude of ways that may include either growth, development and/or success of the athletics department; the criteria for former student-athletes has certain parameters in place before consideration can begin.
Among that criteria for past GCC athletes is: a minimum of 30 credit hours having been earned at GCC, having been graduated or no longer enrolled for five years, and having achieved a level of academic excellence and community service.
Criteria for team nominations begins with a level of championship success; whether regional or national, along with a distinguishable significance through the school and/or community.
Completed nomination applications should be returned to the athletics department at the Richard C. Call Arena, and nomination applications can be downloaded from geneseeathletics.com under the "Inside Athletics" tab that provides a dropdown list whereby "Hall of Fame" should be selected.
Inclusion in the Athletics Hall of Fame is the highest athletic honor that GCC can bestow on its alumni and supporters. Inductees are honored at Homecoming each year a class is enshrined. Since the Hall's inception in 2010, 23 members have been enshrined to date with three selections being teams.
