Wittenberg Athletics Hall of Honor
In 1985, Wittenberg University held the first Athletics Hall of Honor induction, enshrining 12 student-athletes and coaches who blazed the way for thousands of Tigers who followed in their footsteps.
Every year since, the Athletics Hall of Honor has continued to induct the finest student-athletes, coaches and administrators. Honorees have excelled in their service to the university, either on the field of competition or behind the scenes, making possible everything our student-athletes accomplish.
From the Hall of Honor Constitution:
The Hall of Honor
The Wittenberg Athletics Hall of Honor is located in the lobby of the Health, Physical Education and Recreation (HPER) Center, outside the entrance to the Bob Rosencrans Fitness Center and near the entrance to Pam Evans Smith Arena. The Hall of Honor features bronze plaques commemorating each inductee, serving as both reminder and inspiration to everyone who dons the Red & White.
Induction ceremonies are held annually during Homecoming Weekend. The inductees, members of the University and Athletics administration, coaches, family and friends gather at the Courtyard by Marriott on Fountain Ave. in downtown Springfield to celebrate.
The Hall of Honor Committee
The 16-person Hall of Honor Committee chooses outstanding candidates over the course of three meetings each year. The committee is composed of the Director of Athletics & Recreation, the Senior Woman Administrator, a representative of the Office of Sports Information, three members-at-large with at least 10 years of identification with Wittenberg Athletics, and nine additional members who serve staggered three-year terms.
The Hall of Honor Committee is governed by the Athletics Hall of Honor Constitution.
Nominations may be submitted by anyone at any time using an online form (linked below) or in writing. Nominations do not expire, meaning that candidates not chosen for induction will continue as a candidate in following years. Nominations must be accompanied by supporting evidence of outstanding contributions to athletics at Wittenberg, including but not limited to statistics, newspaper articles, and awards and honors.
