McGuffey High School is reestablishing the Athletic Hall of Fame. We are beginning to accept nominations for induction in the fall of 2011. Since the Hall of Fame has been inactive for the past twenty-eight years, we are limiting the nominations at this time to the following graduation classes: 1983 through 1992. If you would like to submit names of individuals for years other than 1983 - 1992, we will accept them and hold them until we are including those years for induction. McGuffey High School Hall of Fame nomination packets are available in the high school guidance office. Thank you in advance for your participation in recognizing McGuffey High Schoolís outstanding athletes, coaches, and contributors. For more information, please contact Jodi White in the high school guidance office at 724-948-3328 x 3007.
