The Mount Olive High School announces its search for the next inductee to the Mount Olive High School Hall of Fame. This award will both honor and recognize previous MOHS graduates that have gone on to great works. Hall of Fame honorees will have their picture posted in a permanent display in the High School Commons area along with a biography of their accomplishments after leaving MOHS. Today's MOHS students need role models with demonstrated personal histories of excellence and honor. It is our hope that our present day students will benefit from lessons learned by the school's yearly Hall of Fame honorees. Each award recipient will be able to speak to the students of the school, encouraging them that unparalleled success is not only possible, but expected from MOHS students.
As a part of the Hall induction ceremonies, the Mount Olive Township Schools will host an awards banquet and reception. At the school's ceremony the nominee will be officially inducted and offered the opportunity to address the crowd to explain how their MOHS education helped to shape their amazing accomplishments.
Although virtue may bring its own reward, we believe that good works deserve more concrete and tangible form of recognition. From the time of the laurel wreath awarded by the ancient Greeks, people recognize that in every field of endeavor some have distinguished themselves as outstanding in their particular work. Very often, in saluting such outstanding people, we do more than merely honor them; we help them to set an example for others.
In order to make this event happen, we need your help. Do you know of someone that is worthy of being inducted into the Hall? The nominees need not be heroes, just ordinary people that have graduated from MOHS ten years prior to the current year and have used their education to serve others with distinction. If you do, please complete the nomination Google form below, but please refer to the guidelines link embedded in the form first! Thank you for your help!
