In April of 2018, the Glenbrook North Athletic Hall of Fame is scheduled to induct its inaugural class.

Athletic Director John Catalano said the hall of fame is a way to honor athletic contributors.

“It’s really a program where we can recognize and honor individuals or teams who have made significant contributions to the athletic department based on their commitment, based on their dedication [and] based on their talents,” Catalano said.

According to Catalano, the first induction group can include athletes, coaches and teams from any time. A committee of coaches and community members is expected to select the future hall-of-famers from a nomination form, available on the GBN website for anyone to fill out by Oct. 1.

Hall of fame inductees would be honored at the Pride Assembly each year, along with a reception and a plaque in the school.

“I’m hoping that they get a sense of the history, a sense of the past, a sense of accomplishment,” said Catalano. “[High] schools keep churning out and keep going, and they don’t pause to reflect on all the good things that have happened in their history, and I hope this is one of those things where people get a chance to reflect back, and pause and really marvel at some of the things that have been accomplished.”
