SIKESTON — Nominations for inductees to the 2018 Sikeston R-6 Honor Wall and Hall of Fame are accepted through July 1.

Since 1995, the Sikeston Honor Wall has recognized individuals — usually a former teacher, administrator or school board member — for their service to the school district.

The SPS Hall of Fame honors individuals and teams that have made outstanding and lasting contributions in the field of athletics or school activities. Sikeston High School students cannot be nominated until five years after their graduation.

The nomination process is an easy one, which requires filling out a form prior to the July 1 deadline, organizers said.

Forms are available at central office or by clicking the “Hall of Fame/Honor Wall” hyperlink on righthand column of the district’s website: Nominations may be dropped off at central office or mailed to: Sikeston R-6 Central Office, 1002 Virginia, Sikeston, MO 63801. Nominations must be postmarked by July 1.

The induction ceremony of individuals who are selected is set for Aug. 18 during the Sikeston Bulldogs football game versus the Charleston Bluejays. New inductees and their families as well as past inductees will be invited to attend the celebration.
