Who will be Ogden’s 2017 “Top Dogs”?
The Iowa: Then and Now class is continuing the tradition. The “Top Dogs” Hall of Fame, started in 2016, was established to recognize Ogden Alumni for outstanding achievement during or after Ogden High School. The hall also recognizes staff and coaches for their outstanding careers at OHS.
To be a “Top Dog”, a candidate must be nominated by the public, and chosen by a committee that will remain anonymous to the school and community. A formal induction ceremony is then held during Homecoming week. Anyone in the community will be able to nominate an applicant for the committee to choose from. Nomination forms will be available from June until August 1st in the Ogden Public Library, Ogden City Hall, or the OHS District Office. You can also print out, or fill out, a form online, found under Quick Links for Community at www.Ogdenschools.org. The forms must be completed and turned in to the district office at Ogden Community School District, 732 W Division Street, Ogden, IA, 50212 before August 1st.
In 2016, an induction ceremony was held during Homecoming, where the inaugural class of inductees was formally introduced and awarded. Lillian Kruse, Bob Morgan, Gary Paulsen, Gaile Carlson, Larry Tryon, and Jesse Sundell were the first of many Ogden heroes to be inducted. We need you to begin nominating those you feel should join these “Top Dogs” in the Hall of Fame.
There is a display in the making by the OHS Manufacturing Class, which will highlight the “Top Dogs”. It will be located near the East entrance of the High School by the gym. We encourage you to be thinking of people who you believe would meet the criteria of Ogden’s “Top Dogs”. To see the full listing of criteria, click on the Criteria tab on the Ogden Schools website.
The Iowa: Then and Now class thanks you for all your help and support! We are excited to induct a new group of “Top Dogs”!
