While The Cadets Hall of Fame Committee is still in the process of detailing and documenting its overall elective process and bylaws, the members felt it important to immediately address the requests they have received for the removal of George Hopkins from The Cadets Hall of Fame.
In an effort to maintain the integrity of The Cadets Hall of Fame, the committee unanimously voted that if a Hall of Fame member behaves in a way that is not aligned with the values of The Cadets, and therefore does not live up to the standards of moral character for a Cadets Hall of Fame member, they should be considered for removal from the Hall of Fame. Given the adoption of this criteria, and under the guidance of the YEA! Board of Directors, George Hopkins’ membership in The Cadets Hall of Fame has been revoked.
The committee will continue to work on its bylaws and procedures, and plans to finalize and announce all details by July 31, 2018.
