How to Nominate
Committee members will be responsible for choosing Hall of Fame honorees for that annual cycle from those individuals (or groups) that have been recommended through the established application process. They will use the criteria and voting mechanism set forth by the Committee to make final determinations. Committee members may not vote for themselves or close family members (e.g. one generation), but may complete ballots otherwise.
- An alumnus will become eligible for nomination for the Hall of Fame after seven (7) full years following his/her graduation from PBHS.
- A group or team will become eligible for nomination for the Hall of Fame after seven (7) full years following the school year of its accomplishment(s).
- An adult staff member (e.g. teacher, coach, counselor, etc.) will become eligible for nomination after three (3) full years following one’s departure or retirement from PBHS.
- Special contributors eligible for nomination include individuals or groups that have developed, supported or fostered exceptional and/or ongoing growth within the Philip Barbour High School community.
- Special Nominees: Under rare and special circumstances, the Hall of Fame committee may waive the number of years requirement or alumnus (graduation) status requirement with a 2/3 majority vote of the full committee.
Nominations for consideration into the PBHS Hall of Fame may be submitted by any member or by the public, including committee members. Applications for HOF nominations will be accepted annually during an announced window of approximately six weeks at the beginning of the calendar year. Nomination forms will be available during such periods on this website, at the main office at Philip Barbour High School and on-line at the PBHS website: pbhs.barb.k12.wv.us.
Once nominated, individuals and groups will remain on the ballot for three (3) years or until induction. Following this period, they may, at any point, be re-nominated through the annual process. A newly submitted nomination will “restart the three-year nomination clock.” After three years, those not selected or re-nominated will become inactive.
