Nominations are being accepted through June 30 for people who’ve made a positive difference in the State College Area School District community.
According to a report on behalf of the district, nominations could include noteworthy alumni, faculty and/or other contributors.
The campaign is part of the Maroon and Gray Society — a branch of the State College Area School District Education Foundation founded in 2015 to help enhance education, development and extracurricular opportunities for students, through donations.
“State High has been home to so many remarkable alumni, educators, influencers and stand-out teams and groups, we wanted to find a way to honor these individuals while also supporting today’s students,” foundation President Doug Loviscky said in a statement.
Vice President Chris Buchignani said the long-term goal is to gather nominations and create an annual induction process.
Individuals inducted into the society will be nominated by members of the public and honored at an event held May 19, according to the district’s report.
The induction will be a “permanent mark of distinction for those who have made an extraordinary impact on the lives of students and families within the community,” said a report on behalf of the foundation.
A volunteer committee will review the submissions and choose final inductees, who will be announced Oct. 1 at the State College Alumni Association’s annual homecoming event, according to the report.
