In 1980, Northfield Mount Hermon established an Athletic Hall of Fame. Its purpose: to honor the alumni, coaches, and members of undefeated teams who have demonstrated extraordinary athletic ability, sportsmanship, and leadership on campus, and who, even after they left Northfield Mount Hermon, continued to exemplify the school's mission of education—and life—for the head, heart, and hand.
Nominations for new members are accepted each year. To be eligible, alumni must have graduated at least five years prior. A committee made up of representatives from the athletics department, the Alumni Council, and the Office of Alumni and Parent Programs makes the selections, and new members are inducted on campus during a special weekend each October. Previously submitted nominations will continue to be considered for future years.
This year we celebrated the inductions of two of our winningest coaches, Bill Batty '59 and Frank Millard. As well, the 2013 team inductees were honored during a dinner and reception on October 26. See photos here.
