Hall Of Fame

Complete Information

The KSHSAA Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have contributed their time and talent to their school, community and/or state through secondary school activities.

Housed in the KSHSAA office, 601 SW Commerce Place, Topeka, the KSHSAA Hall of Fame is open to visitors from 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday during the school year and 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday during the summer months.


Nominees must exemplify the highest standards of sportsmanship, citizenship, ethical conduct and moral character. They must have demonstrated OUTSTANDING and exceptional abilities in the category for which they are nominated.

All nominees will be judged on their significant and/or long term contributions to interscholastic activities. Longevity, without meaningful impact, does not constitute appropriate credentials for Hall of Fame consideration.

The nominee must have made a contribution to Kansas high schools in the category for which he/she is being nominated. With the exception of the Contributor Category, the nominee cannot be currently active in the nominated category.

An individual may not nominate himself/herself.


The categories of administrator, faculty, official, student, and contributor are included on the nomination form for expediency in understanding the primary area in which an individual is to be considered for his/her achievements in interscholastic activities. The grouping is to assist those making the nominations in understanding the category description and the type of information needed.

The nominee, when inducted, is no longer categorized, but considered a member of the Hall of Fame. (NOTE: There is no specific quota as to the number from each category selected.) Currently, the maximum number of inductees per year is five.

Inductees will be notified of their selection by the first of December.


  • ADMINISTRATOR Activities Director, Athletic Director, Principal or Superintendent
  • FACULTY Coach, sponsor, or director of an activity
  • OFFICIAL A game official, judge, or adjudicator in interscholastic activities.
  • STUDENT Student achievement in interschool activities. NOTE: Nominee must be graduated from high school a minimum of 5 years.
  • CONTRIBUTOR One who has contributed to the interscholastic activities program in some capacity other than the previously mentioned categories.

A nominee will be considered for two (2) consecutive years. If he/she is not selected during that period, he/she will be placed in the "inactive" file. "Inactive" indicates that the nominee is no longer considered for Hall of Fame induction until renominated. A three (3) year waiting period is required before renomination.
