Dear_______________________,

Congratulations! It gives me great pleasure to inform you that the Peekskill High School Athletic Hall of Fame Committee has

Your outstanding achievement and contribution to the Peekskill High School athletic program has deemed you worthy of this
 great honor. In reviewing your credentials, the committee unanimously supported your nomination and selection into the
 Hall of Fame.

The Peekskill High School Hall of Fame was created to honor:

  • Those individuals who have excelled as coaches while at Peekskill High.
  • Those individuals or staff members who have been ardent supporters of the Peekskill High School
    athletic program.

    the community.

We have a rich tradition of athletic success in Peekskill. By inducting you into the Athletic Hall of Fame, we are thanking
