Wenatchee High School has one of the oldest, most illustrious prep athletic traditions in the state of Washington. It began back on the gridiron in 1905 against Leavenworth and Broadway High Schools. Since then, thousands of student athletes have proudly worn the "purple and gold," guided by hundreds of dedicated coaches. The Wenatchee High School Athletic Hall of Fame was established to recognize exceptional achievements by Panther athletes, coaches and administrators. Images of Hall of Fame members (as they appeared while involved in WHS athletics) and a brief synopsis of accomplishments, are permanently displayed on the "Wall of Fame" across from the athletic office.
Nomination forms are available by selecting "Hall of Fame Submission Form" on upper right column, in the WHS Athletic Office or by calling 509-663-8117 Ext. 6. Potential Hall of Fame members can be nominated by anyone. To be eligible, athletes must have graduated from WHS at least five years prior to their nomination.
Each year, up to five new members are added to the Hall of Fame. New inductees are chosen from the pool of nominated athletes by a 12-person selection committee. To be eligible for consideration athletes must meet the following Hall of Fame Constitution Requirements.
The selection committee includes WHS faculty, Panther Booster Club and at-large representatives. At-large representatives must live in the Wenatchee area and have a strong interest in the value of High School athletics. Committee terms are six years and all members are appointed by the WHS Athletic Director.
