“The work and dedication of the staff and faculty in putting the event on is a clear indication on the importance of being able to honor each inductee and sharing their noteworthy stories for current and future Vikings to admire.”
Doud, Gravett, Mitchell, and Pezman submitted their applications during the Spring semester and underwent months of review.
