The Stoughton Public Schools and the Stoughton Historical Society are pleased to announce that nominations for the 2012 Academic Hall of Fame for Extraordinary Achievement are being accepted.  The Hall of Fame was created in 2004, through the efforts of Joanne McEvoy Blomstrom in honor of her father, Raymond;  and Anthony L. Sarno, Jr., retired Superintendent of Schools, to recognize graduates of Stoughton High School who have achieved notable success in his/her chosen profession either from a singular extraordinary accomplishment, career of exceptional achievement or significant contribution to society.  Those achievements may come from business, medicine, the humanities, the arts, the sciences, education, philanthropy, public service or other similar fields.

Candidates may be nominated by any former Stoughton High School student, any present or past employee of the Stoughton Public Schools or any present or past Stoughton resident.  All previous nominations will be reviewed.

All nominations must be accompanied by a resume, which includes: date of graduation, degree(s), work experience, hobbies and awards/recognitions.  The nominee will be asked to submit a portfolio documenting his/her work.  The deadline for applications is Friday, December 16, 2011.

Nominations, which will be kept on file and eligible for annual review, should be forwarded to:  Dr. Marguerite C. Rizzi, Superintendent, Stoughton Public Schools, 232 Pearl Street, Stoughton, MA 02072.

I thought that this was to be an annual program. It seems that there were no selections, this past school year, in both this HOF as well as the Athletic HOF. Administrators seem to be doing a good job of selecting only "when they want to". Surely, there are those graduates who are qualified to enter each year, not just when "those in charge" want to admit them. Seems that these selections have become another "Political" adventure within the town.
