Nominations now being accepted for 2018 IRHS Hall of Fame

DAGSBORO – The Indian River High School Hall of Fame was established to recognize IRHS graduates who have made outstanding achievements in this world.

The nomination period is now open for the 2018 Hall of Fame induction.

Nominees are graduates who show great character, citizenship and leadership and have made significant contributions in their field and community. They must also demonstrate these qualities in a manner that will inspire students in the pursuit of excellence.

The nominee must have graduated from Indian River High School at least ten years prior to the nomination.  Candidates will be evaluated on achievements and recognition in their chosen fields (in the local, state, national or international arenas).

Today’s students are following in great footsteps. Previous inductees include artists, educators, civic leaders, athletes, first responders and more. They’ve come from as close as Dagsboro and far as Texas and Michigan.

Application packets are online at

By March 30, nominators must submit the paperwork, plus a second recommendation letter from another individual.

Late applications will not be accepted. Nominations will be carefully considered by an impartial selection committee. The winner will be recognized at the IRHS Annual Awards Ceremony in May.

The nomination/induction process is facilitated by Indian River High School Alumni Association. The nonprofit group formed in 2012 to connect alumni, while supporting and promoting IRHS.

The IRHS Alumni Association meets monthly and always welcomes new members.
