Bucyrus inducting new Hall of Fame class Jan. 6

BUCYRUS — Bucyrus City Schools will induct the 2016 class of the Bucyrus Hall of Fame during a program on Friday, Jan. 6. This year’s class includes four individuals and one team.

The festivities will begin with a reception in the Bucyrus Secondary School Little Theatre prior to the start of the home varsity boys basketball game against Buckeye Central that evening.

During the reception, the inductees will be introduced and receive a commemorative plaque. After the reception, the inductees will be introduced between the junior varsity and varsity basketball games.

“The 2016 Hall of Fame is an incredible group of individuals,” said Hall of Fame committee chairperson Jay Dennison. “This class is a testament to the ideal of service above self, and each individual embodies the qualities the committee seeks to showcase.”

The 2016 class includes: Lt. Harry L. Martin, Bill Fisher, Lt. General Norm Smith, Issac Schiefer and the 1990 state championship softball team.

“These individuals have made countless contributions to our district, the Bucyrus community and our country that can never be repaid,” said Bucyrus Superintendent Kevin Kimmel. “This is going to be an amazing night for our district, and I want to personally thank and congratulate each of these individuals for their contributions to the Bucyrus City School District.”

The Hall of Fame seeks to recognize individuals who were outstanding high school athletes, former coaches, school officials, or community members who have distinguished themselves and made positive contributions to the Bucyrus City School District.

Tickets for the induction ceremony cost $5 and can be purchased at the Bucyrus High School or Bucyus Middle School offices. To learn about the Bucyrus Hall of Fame, contact Dennison at 419-562-0003 or jdennison@bucyrusschools.org.
