In the fall of 2006 Northwood University inducted the inaugural class of its newly founded Athletic Hall of Fame, which was announced Dr. Timothy Nash, Provost of Northwood's Michigan campus.
"With over 40 years of athletic history at Northwood University, we feel it is time to start honoring those who have made that history," commented Nash. "The Athletic Hall of Fame will recognize the achievements of the people who have made the greatest contributions to our university's athletic programs."
Former student-athletes, coaches, athletic administrators, as well as long-time supporters of Northwood athletics will be eligible for induction. In addition to athletic prowess and success, positive representation of Northwood and character will be criteria for consideration.
Northwood announced their 15th Hall of Fame class in the summer of 2021. To date, 79 legends from Northwood Athletics as well as three teams have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame Board of Directors will accept nominations for subsequent fall induction until June 1. The induction class will be selected and announced later in the summer.
