ECS Hall of Honor
In the 2012-13 school year, the ECS Hall of Honor was instituted. Hebrews 11:39a, "These were commended for their faith," is the basis for the Hall of Honor. The criteria for being recommended includes ten years association with the school, significant contributions made to ECS and its programs, a servant's heart, ministry to others, being committed to the mission of ECS, and loving and connecting with students and faculty/staff. Recipients are usually those associated with the athletic programs at ECS.
The Hall of Honor committee is made up of the upper, middle, and lower school Athletic Directors, a male and female faculty member, and a male and a female alumnus. Former Athletic Director, John Roelofs, is the chairman of the committee.
There were five inductees in the first class. Since then three honorees have been inducted each year. The inductees are presented with a plaque entitled Hebrews 11 Hall of Honor along with the year inducted and the list of the inductees. The Hebrews 11:39a verse is below the names. The inductees' names are also inscribed on a black plate on the north archway of Legends Field.
