2017_Cadets_Hall of Fame

Cadets Hall of Fame

The Cadets Hall of Fame celebrates the men and women who've contributed greatly to the corps over the years. Please check back next year for details as we finalize our new nomination procedures this year.


The Cadets’ Hall of Fame Committee will not be inducting a 2018 class into the Hall of Fame. With the original schedule for the nomination process having to be adjusted this year, the committee voted that it would be best to take a hiatus rather than rushing to meet a timeline.

The committee will take this time to further detail and document the process for future nominations and inductions. The Hall of Fame is important and deserves proper attention to ensure that this prestigious honor continues to be bestowed on the best of the best from The Cadets’ rich history. When finalized, the criteria, procedures (including removal from the Hall of Fame) and bylaws will be released to the public. 

Note, any nominations submitted this year will be held for consideration in 2019. 

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding The Cadets’ Hall of Fame you can contact the committee at .
