With much of its more than 150-year history steeped in athletic tradition, Lyndon Institute is proud to announce the roll-out of an Athletic Hall of Fame. Eric Berry, Director of Athletics, is excited that Lyndon will recognize great athletes, coaches, teams, alumni, and friends who have meant so much to LI's storied past. "I have been a member of the Lyndon State College Hall of Fame Committee for over a decade and have seen the excitement that goes with bringing great athletes, coaches, and teams back to campus. I am so excited that legendary Vikings will be forever remembered in our newly founded Hall of Fame."

Lyndon Institute's Head of School Twila Perry remarked, "I am thrilled that LI is developing an Athletic Hall of Fame. Over the years we have had many outstanding athletes, coaches, and teams recognized in our community and beyond for their abilities and achievements. An Athletic Hall of Fame will allow us to recognize those who merit recognition now and forever."

Berry mentioned some of the guidelines for nomination and induction. Hall nominees will have made a significant impact on LI athletics; have been recognized locally, regionally, state-wide, and even nationally; represent the highest values of our school and athletic program (character, leadership, and dedication); and exemplify the values set forth in our Code of Respect and Responsibility.

Hall of Fame coaches will have dedicated many years to the LI athletic program; made a significant impact within the culture of the school; is a person of stellar character who has greatly impacted the lives of many students through leadership and example on and off the field.

Athletes, coaches, and teams may be nominated posthumously." I know that the LI Athletic Hall of Fame will solidify a sense of pride and tradition for the school and the Viking athletic community," added Berry.

LI plans its first Hall of Fame banquet and induction ceremony in 2020.
