Inductees into the hall of fame must be graduates of CCCHS or former

other areas, or in their service to CCCHS.
The site of the CCCHS Hall of Fame will be the west wall of the
commons area at the high school. Each member of the hall of fame will
have a plaque with a picture and narrative placed there.
The initial inductees were nominated and selected by the CCCHS Hall of
Fame selection committee.
That committee is made up of three groups serving staggered terms.
Group A consists of Sheldon Bergstrom, Garry Stenzel, Herb Mugler and
Elby Adamson. Group B members are Ginger Walker, Nancy Ryan, Amy
Wichman and Ron Koster. Group C members are Sandy Fox, Rex Carlson,
Arden Alstatt and Brady Burton.
In the future, nominations can be made by anyone. Nominations will be
solicited through announcements in the Dispatch, CCCHS
newsletter, on KCLY, the USD-379 Web site and other means during
September or earlier.
After nominations are received, the selection committee will meet in
November to consider the nominations. For an individual to be
selected, he or she must have the votes of at least nine members of
the selection committee.
No more than four people will be inducted in any year. Some years,
there may be none.
