Completed nomination forms should include biographical data to support the nomination, information about the significant contribution or representation the person has made to education or to the local community, rationale for recommendation, and a list of family members in the area if the person to be so honored is no longer living.

The committee or Board shall not consider petitions. The Board of Trustees’ Naming Facilities Committee will review the nominations in February and is expected to make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees at their February monthly meeting.
