Athletic Hall of Honor Ceremony At Homecoming

September 21, 2017 Posted in: School News Tags: , ,

The Westminster Academy Alumni Association will hold an induction ceremony for the Athletic Hall of Honor prior to the Homecoming game at the Alumni Tailgate presented by Hayes Locums on Friday, October 6.

The Westminster Academy Athletic Hall of Honor exists to honor the men and women who have made outstanding contributions to the WA Athletic program. Since 1971, the mighty Lions have been blessed by a distinguished athletic legacy, and we want to recognize and honor our exceptional alumni, coaches, and contributors who were instrumental in the success of our athletic program. Plaques for each inductee are displayed in the Athletic Hall of Honor located on the east campus, near the Admissions Office. As a way to continue to promote the mission of WA and to inspire excellence in athletics and the overall educational journey of our students, we want to celebrate our nominees for their demonstration of discipline, sacrifice, perseverance, cooperation, and commitment in athletics for God’s glory at WA.
