The University of Maine at Fort Kent Athletic Hall of Fame Committee seeks nominations of individual student-athletes, teams, coaches, and administrators for induction into the university’s Athletic Hall of Fame.

Nominations will be accepted through Tuesday, Feb. 28. The induction ceremony will be held during UMFK’s Homecoming weekend in September.

The UMFK Athletic Hall of Fame was established to recognize the men and women who have distinguished themselves in the field of athletics by their performance on UMFK athletic teams, through their achievements after graduation from the University, or by their efforts on behalf of UMFK Athletics, according to a news release from Susan Tardie of University Relations.

Nominations will be accepted in the following categories: athlete, team, coach/administrator, and special inductee.

Any alumni or friend of UMFK can submit a nomination for consideration by a 15-member selection committee, which consists of students, athletes, coaches, faculty, administrators and alumni of the university. Nominees must receive at least 70 percent of the vote of the selection committee to be eligible for induction into the UMFK Athletic Hall of Fame.

A complete list of the eligibility requirements, the selection process for inclusion in the Athletic Hall of Fame, and an official nomination form are located at
