Purple Rain Roof Party Results

Board Member Carol Mitchell Lawrence reports on the final results of the Purple Rain Rooftop Party held on June 4th. “Thank you to all who contributed and participated in our BIG 50 Purple Rain Rooftop Party! Because of your generosity, we are able to donate $800, with $400 being allocated to each of our initiatives. Although, we did not reach our goal, every dollar counts. Your contribution will allow us to award one $500 scholarship, and support several team meals this year. Special shout out to the class of ’77, ’80, ’82 and ’83 for your support. Again thanks to everyone, and I hope you enjoyed. Stay tuned for future opportunities to get involved….. For more of Carol’s comments and photos of the party, click HERE.

Withrow Athletic Hall of Fame Nomination Forms Being Accepted for 2017

Nominations are now being solicited for candidates to be considered as inductees to the Withrow Athletic Hall of Fame (WAHOF) class of 2017. Nominations are valid for 4 years. If a nominee is not inducted after 4 years they must be re-nominated. Withrow inducts 5 inductees every year. The nomination form may be found HERE. You have the option of downloading and printing the form or submitting it on line. Please review the criteria for candidates to be considered as inductees.

Please provide as much information as you possibly can including any contact information for the nominee or a family member if the nominee is deceased. Use as many attachments as necessary to support why your nominee should be inducted. Withrow does not have the staffing to do extensive research on nominees so help us out by providing as much detail as possible.

Anyone having interest in being on the selection committee should contact me at caboosevin@gmail.com. We do have one available position.

There are significant costs associated with ensuring that the WAHOF continues on for many years. Withrow had many great athletes who need to be inducted. Remember, there was no WAHOF until the first class was inducted in 2012. We are asking for tax-deductible donations to defray our costs. Donations may be made online by clicking HERE.  A check should be made payable to Withrow Alumni Inc. with a memo indicating the donation is for the WAHOF. Please mail it to Withrow Alumni Inc., P.O. Box 8186, Cincinnati, Ohio 45208.
