Wakeman Club seeks nominations for new Hall of Fame

As part of its yearlong centennial celebration, the Wakeman Boys & Girls Club plans to establish a Hall of Fame to recognize notable members of the Southport institution, as well as alumni, staff, volunteers, donors and community supporters.
The club has begun soliciting nominations for the first class of inductees, who will be installed in October.
"Through its 100-year history, Wakeman has been fortunate to be the beneficiary of countless leaders, mentors, educators, benefactors and friends," David Blagys, the Wakeman executive director, said in a statement. "We feel it is time to recognize some of these folks for all that they gave to make Wakeman what it is today."
In addition to being a member of the Wakeman "family," club officials said the criteria they will use to select Hall of Fame enrollees will include someone who has "become a solid citizen and led a successful professional/personal life, and has given back to the club or the community (local or otherwise) in some fashion -- financially or as volunteer."
