2013 Ceremony Will Celebrate 100th Anniversary of District
LONG BEACH, NY - Nominations for the 2013-2014 inductions into the Long Beach High School Wall of Fame will be accepted through June 1, 2013. To nominate a candidate, please pick up a nomination form at any Long Beach public school, the Long Beach Public Schools Administration Office, the Athletic Office at Long Beach High School, or download a form at www.lbeach.org.
The Long Beach High School Wall of Fame was conceived to honor present and former members of the Long Beach community who have made substantial contributions either locally or to the world at large, including contributions in the area of athletics. This year, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the district, nominations of historical figures, living and deceased, who have played a critical role in politics, cultural affairs, business and education, will also be accepted. Historical figures who have already been inducted to the Wall of Fame in previous years will not be considered. Please visit www.lbeach.org to view a complete list of the past inductees to the Wall of Fame.
In 1996, the Wall of Fame was dedicated by the Long Beach Booster Club in cooperation with the Long Beach Public Schools to serve as an inspiration for the youth of Long Beach. Qualified candidates must have either attended Long Beach High School for at least two full years, or in lieu of such attendance, must have been associated with the Long Beach community for a period of no less than 10 years. In honor of the 100th anniversary of the district, the definition of qualified candidates was expanded to include historical figures who have had a lasting impact on the cultural, political, economic or educational development of the Long Beach community.
Please detail specific achievements, dates worth noting, and any and all other supporting information, documentation, photographs, newspaper articles, testimonials and the like. Completed forms and all other supporting information should be sent to the Office of the Superintendent, 239 Lido Boulevard, Lido Beach, NY 11561-5093 before Saturday, June 1, 2013.
Any resident of the Long Beach School District, or district staff member who has been employed in the district for no less than five continuous years, may nominate a candidate for inclusion into the Wall of Fame.
