Wall of Honor Nominations for Meritorious Service and Pioneer Awards Needed

MIAMI SHORES, Fla.— The Barry University Athletic Wall of Honor selection committee is soliciting nominations for Meritorious Service and Pioneer Awards for the seventh induction class, which we will honor in April, 2014.  Nominations should be submitted to the committee by Jan. 15, 2014.

Since its inception in 1996, the Wall of Honor has grown to include nearly 50 former Buccaneer student-athletes, coaches and administrators.

For nomination for meritorious service, the candidate must personify the ideals of good sportsmanship, team allegiance and the mission of Barry. They also must have achieved notable/significant accomplishments in one’s chosen career or life experience, including community service. For student-athletes, 10 years must have elapsed since their graduation.

The Pioneer Award was established to recognize Barry University alumni who made significant contributions to the athletic achievements at Barry prior to 1984, during the formative years of the University. Its purpose is to recognize those individuals who have brought distinction, honor and excellence to Barry University. The individuals selected have exercised personal dedication to athletics, brought distinction to the University through related athletic leadership accomplishments, and fostered sportsmanlike attitudes in correlation to the mission of Barry University.

All nominations should be mailed or sent electronically to Director of Athletics Michael L. Covone.
