WADA Hall of Fame Nomination Form

The WADA Hall of Fame is organized as a means of recognizing interscholastic athletic directors, promoting the vocation of athletic directors and preserving the heritage of the profession.  This honor is one of the highest a Wisconsin athletic director can receive from WADA for his/her contributions and accomplishments at the local, state and national levels.  Further, this award set a standard for athletic directors to emulate.
