2015 Nominations

     Anyone may nominate a candidate but candidates must meet requirements set forth on the nomination form.

     Nominations for the Hall of Fame for the class of 2015 will be accepted January 12th through April 10, 2015. Nomination forms will be available here next week.

The Rich History

     In 1980, Mildred Turner and Loren Shirar established the John Muir Pride Task Force. The purpose was to improve school pride and campus beautification. They did this by making spirit buttons, painting the campus, creating murals, landscaping and holding various fundraisers and other events to improve the school. Then in 1988, the Alumni Hall of Fame was created to further demonstrate the potential of the students.

     The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to honor alumni who have had outstanding careers in their chosen professions and to use them as examples to Muir students that they have the potential to succeed just as their predecessors have.

     There are three separate awards that may be bestowed each year by the John Muir High School Alumni Association:  The Alumni Award, the Jim Brownfield Service Award and the Rufus Mead Award.

     Recipients of the Alumni Award must have attended or graduated from John Muir High School, John Muir College or John Muir Technical High School.  They must have had an outstanding career that has resulted in a direct and significant impact in their field for at least five years.  The nine categories in which alumni/alumnae are recognized are the following:  Business, Community Service, Education, Government Service, Performing Arts, Science (Medicine/Health), Sports or Coaching, Visual Arts and Writing (Author or Reporter). You must choose the category that best describes the career path of your nominee.

     The Jim Brownfield Service Award is a special award named for Jim Brownfield, the outstanding and beloved Muir teacher, mentor and coach from 1980 to 1996.  It honors individuals who are not an alumnus/alumna of Muir and have demonstrated extraordinary and dedicated service to Muir and the Muir community for at least five years.

     The Rufus Mead Award is named after a former Muir principal.  It is bestowed from time to time upon alumni/alumnae who have made overwhelming contributions in any of the categories for the Alumni Award and the nominations and selection are made only by the Alumni Association’s Board of Directors.

     Inductees are selected by a committee of teachers, students, administrators, HOF inductees and Association Board members. This committee meets privately to review the profiles of those nominated and work independently to choose the most worthy candidates for the Hall of Fame. The inductees are then officially inducted in a ceremony at Muir during Homecoming Week.

     The inductees are also honored during halftime at the Turkey Tussle on the Rose Bowl field. The inductees’ photograph is added to the "Wall of Fame" at Muir where it will be displayed for all time. Finally, we honor them here for the entire world to see how much we care about our alums and their achievements.

Nominations are closed for 2015
