Established in January of 2002, the Gilmer County High School Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes excellence in athletics as demonstrated by former Gilmer High School athletes – or – outstanding contributions made to the Gilmer County High School athletic program by coaches, administrators, support personnel, or booster club members.


An athlete, coach, school administrator, support personnel, or booster club member must have one or more of these qualities to be considered for nomination:

Excellence in performance
Display of character and leadership in sports and community activities
Honors received and records established
Significant contributions made to the school and community


In order to be selected for induction, a nominee must receive a majority vote from the Hall of Fame membership.

All members of the Hall of Fame will vote.

Members who are not present will vote by absentee ballot. If an athlete is not selected on the first ballot, she or he still has an opportunity to be selected at a later date during the three year period of eligibility.
