Maine Accepting Nominations for 2012 Hall of Fame Class
ORONO, Maine- The University of Maine is once again accepting nominations for its Sports Hall of Fame. Nomination forms may be downloaded by clicking the link below. Nominations are due May 4, 2012.
The Hall of Fame was established in the mid-80’s in order to recognize former student-athletes, coaches, administrators and supporters for their high achievements and contributions to the success of Maine Athletics. Since 1986, 170 individuals have been honored with induction into the Hall of Fame.
The criteria for selection into the Hall of Fame is achievement in the athletic program, but other factors are also considered. They include character, leadership and integrity, as well as non-athletic service to the University community and achievement later in life. Nominees must be unaffiliated from the University of Maine for five years. The 2011 class included Jim Ballinger, Dick Collins, Linda Consolante-Hathorn, Mark Coutts, Jimmy Howard, William Hunnewell and Tim Tobin.
