Harker's Athletic Hall of Fame

Harker's Athletic Hall of Fame opened on Oct. 5, 2018. The Hall of Fame honors the dedication and sacrifice of Harker's athletes, teams, coaches and sports supporters. Each year, inductees are selected based on their exemplifying desirable character traits at Harker and beyond, and having distinguished themselves in competition representing Harker, their colleges or at the professional level. Inductees may also be non-graduates who, through long service to Harker, have distinguished themselves in the field of athletics. Each member of the Athletic Hall of Fame receives an award for display and will have his/her name enshrined on the Hall of Fame wall in the athletic center on the upper school campus. For more information about the Hall of Fame, contact communications@harker.org.
