Nominations now being accepted for Cadets Hall of Fame

Guidelines and submission process outlined for 2010 Class


There is no greater honor for a Cadet, or someone who has served the corps faithfully, than to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Since its creation, the names of 33 inductees now grace the Hall of Fame dedication plaque in The Cadets office in Allentown, Pa. 

More than an etching on a nameplate, these dedicated individuals gave their heart and soul to the organization, and their contributions to the corps, and the activity, have had a profound impact in carrying on the legacy of The Cadets.

The Cadets Hall of Fame Committee is now taking nominations for the 2010 Class. Nominations will be taken through April 11th. 

Hall of Fame Committee Chairman Eric Santo would like to remind alumni of a few of the guidelines that should be followed: 

1. The initial nomination MUST come from a Cadet alumnus. Support letters can be submitted from anyone. 

2. The nominees must have been active in the Cadets as a member, instructional staff or support staff (includes quartermasters, drivers, parents, cooks, etc…) 

3. Nominations must be made by letter to the Cadets Hall of Fame Committee. The letter should describe the candidate’s qualifications. No person may nominate more than one candidate per year for election. Letters and nominations will be sent to the Cadets Office in c/o the Chairman of the committee.  

4. Each nomination must be supported by one, and up to four (4) additional letters describing the nominee’s qualifications. Only two letters per year will be accepted from any one person in support of a nominee for election. In the event that more than four letters supporting any nomination are received, the person making the nomination will select no more than four of these letters to be posted along with the ballot. 

5. Groups are no longer eligible for inclusion in the HOF. 

6. Nominations and acceptance of letters of support must be received by April 11, 2010. No nominations and/or letters will be accepted after this date. 

7. All nominations and support letters will be posted on the Cadets Web site. The ballots and support letters will NOT be mailed. If an eligible voter does not have a computer, have them contact the Committee Chairman c/o the Cadets. 

8. In order to be eligible to vote, you must be a member of the Cadets Alumni Association or a current member of the Cadets Hall of Fame. [Register for the CAA by CLICKING HERE

When the nomination process closes on April 11th, the Hall of Fame Committee will review the nominations and select qualified nominees for inclusion in the official ballot provided to the Electors (registered members of the Cadets Alumni Association.) 

Electors will review the ballots and cast their votes online. Those registered alumni who don’t have online access will still be able to vote, said Santo, as measures are being put in place to assist. 

Announcement of the inductees of the 2010 Class will be made during a Cadets-hosted Three ‘C’ Double Play Season Opener on June 18th in Allentown, Pa. 

Letters of nomination should be sent to Caryn Goebel, YEA! Coordinator for the Cadets Hall of Fame, by email at, or by mail to: Cadets Hall of Fame, Youth Education in the Arts, 601 W. Hamilton St., Allentown, Pa., 18101.

Below are the key dates in the nomination and voting process: 

  • Nominations accepted March 1 through April 11
  • Voting begins April 16 through June 1
