County Hall of Fame nominations due by May 1

The Warren County Sports Hall of Fame will be closing nominations for its next induction class on Friday, May 1.

This will be the last day that nomination forms will be accepted, so if you are considering nominating someone, do so by this date, according to WCSHOF President Nate Sandberg.

“We have had nominations from a variety of sports, talents, and decades,” he said. “The sports history throughout Warren County is strong, and we are seeing that with each nomination.”

If you need a nomination form, visit the “Warren County Sports Hall of Fame” Facebook page, or email Sandberg at natesandy31@gmail.com.

All nominations come from the public; this has been the policy of the WCSHOF since its beginning in 1993. The WCSHOF board of directors as a whole does not nominate nor induct any potential candidate. Candidates will be announced at a date after May 1 for the 2020 class.

With the county’s sports Hall of Fame not having an induction class in 10 years (2010), “I expect the nominees to be very strong,” Sandberg said last month. “Think about it. The newly-eligible people would have been only 20-years-old when the Hall of Fame had its last class. We have 10 years of no induction classes, so I am expecting not only a wide age range of nominees, but a solid amount of quality and high-caliber nominees that the board will look at.”

The Warren County Chapter of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame is a not-for-profit organization that honors the accomplishments of athletes, coaches, sports organizers, and promoters. It inducts living nominees who are at least 30 years old who have an outstanding sports-related accomplishment. Deceased nominees need not meet the criterion. In order to be on the ballot, each nominee must have roots in Warren County.
