Nominations are now open for the second class of the Fremont County School District #25 Hall of Fame at Riverton High School. The second class will be inducted in the Fall of 2016. RHS Assistant Principal and Activities Director Jeremy Hill said the Hall of Fame is broad in scope, "but is intended to specifically recognize the significant achievement and contributions of current or past staff members or volunteers, as well as alumni who have made a distinguished contribution to society after graduation." Hill said community members are encouraged to identify and nominate coaches, teachers and staff that were instrumental in implementing innovative programs or leading outstanding teams. Individual standout students, as well as entire teams or programs, should be considered for induction as well. Making a nomination is easy and you have plenty of time.
