Hall of Fame Info




You have been selected to the Thurston High School’s Athletic Hall of Fame by the Thurston Hall of Fame Committee. The Thurston community has a rich history and tradition of athletic programs and accomplishments. This would not be true if it weren’t for the teams and individuals like yourself, who have demonstrated through their talent and effort, exceptional levels of achievement and competitive spirit.

Please join us as we celebrate you at our Athletic Hall of Fame Ceremony. The event begins Friday, February 7, 2020 at a reception welcoming you and your guests. The event will take place in the Library at Thurston and will begin at 5:30 p.m. You will be introduced at the Thurston Boys Varsity basketball game. The game starts at 7:00 p.m. You will be introduced right before the game begins.

The next evening, Saturday, February 8, 2020,  we will formally induct you and your fellow honorees at the Hall of Fame dinner in the Thurston Cafeteria. The doors will open at 5:00 p.m., dinner is at 5:30 p.m. and the ceremony will begin at 6:00 p.m.

   Here is a check list of things that you will need to provide us with:

  • Please provide 5 10 pictures you have from high school and beyond. We would especially like photos of you in your uniform(s). These photos are due by October 18, 2019. All photos will be scanned and returned to you in a timely fashion.  You may submit photos that we can scan, or you can put them on a flash drive. You can send them to Thurston High School in care of Justin Starck or Sheila Lewellen
  • Please list your athletic accomplishments and honors by year. We have many of your accomplishments already, but we want to make sure our records are accurate. We would like to make bullet points for our program so list what you consider your highest achievements. Please return this paper with your pictures.
  • TICKETS – Two complimentary tickets will be provided; additional tickets must be purchased for $50 apiece. You may purchase them online, www.thscoltspace.com
  • mail in your order or purchase them at Thurston High School in our accounting department from Lisa McDaniel .  They will be available starting

November 1. I will be contacting you the first week in January for an accurate count of how many tickets you will need. We have to know a week in advance for ordering the dinners we have catered by Hole in the Wall BBQ. I will be sending out more information concerning tickets.

  • At the actual event on Saturday night you will need a person to introduce you (former coach or teacher, family member, friend or whomever you choose). It’s nice if they can focus on you and your athletic career at Thurston and after high school if it applies. You will then have the opportunity to speak as you accept your Hall of Fame Induction. You can talk about your experiences at Thurston as an athlete, your coaches, friends and teachers that supported you and other things that may come to mind.

You and your presenter are limited to 10 minutes. You may divide
       the time up however you choose. Thank You in advance for staying
       within the time frame! 

We are inducting 7 Individuals and one coach. We would like to keep the banquet at around 2 hours. Thank You in advance for honoring our time line.
