In an effort to include all Cadets Alumni the Hall of Fame induction process, a nomination and voting procedure was created several years ago with the intent to allow for extensive alumni involvement. Alas, the participation only reached about 300 alumni at its highest point, and those 300 only came with a good deal of marketing, reminders and effort.
This was discussed in a recent meeting of The Cadets Hall of Fame Committee chaired by Dr. Eric Santo, and by unanimous vote it was agreed that the process should be streamlined.
With all respect to alumni, it appears that many former Cadets do not participate because they simply are not aware of the many alumni of the different generations. As one alum said, “It’s difficult to make a decision when I feel like there is so much I should know before casting a vote.”
