Criteria for Selection: The following are general guidelines for the selection of inductees into the GHS Hall of Fame. Although these guidelines are organized separately for four different classes of membership, it should be noted that many potential inductees qualify in multiple categories and thus may not meet the exacting standards for any one category but, in combination, qualify for induction. Individuals may have achieved distinction in one or more of the following four categories: Athletic Achievement, Achievement in the Arts, Academic Achievement, and Community Service Achievement. Inductees must have attended some level of school in Globe or have been a teacher or administrator in Globe. Each year, the Board of Directors will determine the cutoff year for nominee consideration.

Athletic Achievement: Any person who has distinguished achievements in the field of athletics or other team activities as a student or coach at GHS is eligible. Achievements for consideration include All-State recognition or establishment of school/regional/state records. College and professional achievements may also be considered to support the selection of a candidate. The Candidate Selection Committee is authorized to recognize an especially high performing team that may have won a State Championship or achieved some other high honor. Other considerations may be taken into account, but may not take the place of the above criterion.

Achievement in the Arts: Any person who has distinguished achievements in the Arts either while a student or faculty member at Globe High School or has received recognition after graduating or leaving Globe High School for Achievement in the Arts. The Arts can cover a broad variety of areas from visual arts to music to writing.

Academic Achievement: Any person who has distinguished achievements in the field of academic excellence either as a teacher or student. Considerations will be advanced degrees achieved, and achievements in education and academics after graduating from Globe. Significant contributions to the fields of Education, Law, Medicine, Engineering, Applied or Basic Research will be considered. Globe High School teachers and administrators who have made significant contributions will be considered.

Achievement in Community Service: Any Globe High student/teacher/administrator who has distinguished achievements through contributions made to the community over a significant period of time. This community service may be rendered to Globe or any other community where the person resides. This service should take the form of leadership positions in community organizations, service agencies, business enterprises, military service, or elective office.

General Requirements for Inductees: In order to maintain the integrity of the Hall of Fame, inductees must exemplify the highest standards of citizenship, ethical conduct, and moral character. All nominees will be judged on their significant and/or long term contributions. The board will determine the number of inductees each year.

Candidate Selection Procedures: The Candidate Selection Committee shall prepare and distribute nomination forms in such a way as to make them available to the largest possible number of potentially interested persons. These nomination forms must include the criteria for selection, the name, address, telephone number and signature of the nominator (or of surviving family members if deceased) along with instructions for a narrative that provides the justification for the induction of the nominee.

Any person may nominate any person for induction into the Globe High School Hall of Fame. In addition to a narrative justifying induction, the nomination may include letters of recommendation or support, newspaper clippings, magazine articles, or statistics that substantiate the accomplishments and contributions of the nominee. A suitable photograph should be included if possible.

The Board of Directors is responsible for the timely and broad dissemination of Candidate Selection forms. Deadline for form submission is June 1st of each year. After June 1, the Candidate Selection Committee will meet to select the number of nominees that the board has ruled on. All discussions and votes shall be held in srtict confidence. A nominee will be considered for induction if that nominee receives an affirmative vote of two thirds of the Candidate Selection Committee. The number of candidates chosen will not exceed the maximum established by the board for that year. A report will be made to the board by the Chairperson of the Candidate Selection Committee. The board then must ratify the selection of each candidate by a two thirds vote.

After board approval, the Chairperson of the Awards Committee is responsible for the notification of successful nominees of their impending induction. The nomination form of any person nominated but not selected for induction will be retained and reviewed for three additional years. If a nominee is not selected for induction during that four year period, the nomination will be withdrawn.

Records: It is the responsibility of the board to keep all nomination records in a secure location. These records must be accessible at all times by the current President of the organization.

Provision for the removal of a previously selected Hall of Fame Member: The Board of Directors has the responsibility and the authority to remove any individual previously chosen to be a member of the GHS Hall of Fame if at some future date it is discovered that that person has been convicted of a felony or has in some way brought dishonor to Globe High School. This action requires a vote of two thirds of the board.

Revision of Charter and Bylaws: The Charter and Bylaws may be amended or revised by the board at any time, by a vote of two thirds of the entire board. Any proposed amendment or revision must be provided in writing to the entire board at least two weeks prior to a vote. For these purposes, a vote registered either by teleconference or by e-mail to the Secretary will count.
