A number of sports enthusiasts formed a group to organize a "Hall of Fame" in 1988-89 to honor past Geneva athletes and to support present and future athletes. The Geneva Sports Hall of Fame Association came to fruition in June, 1989 with the election of officers, and the establishment of a Constitution and By-Laws.
Every eighteen months the association holds a banquet to honor and induct into the "Hall of Fame" those athletes, coaches, and contributors who meet the criteria established by the Board of Directors. To qualify one must have attended Geneva High School or DeSales High School or made an outstanding contribution to athletics in the City of Geneva. Candidates must have distinguished themselves and brought honor to their institutions. They must also have served as outstanding examples of the type of character, courage, leadership, and well-rounded individuals which our institutions seek to develop through their athletic programs.
It is our hope that in honoring our Hall of Famers we will not only preserve the rich sports history of Geneva but also inspire future athletes to strive to one day take their place among the Hall of Famers.
