Submit Your VMAPA Hall of Fame Nominations

Dec 14, 2017 | Alumni, Hall of Fame, News

The time has come once again to submit your nominations for the VMAPA Hall of Fame!

Established in 2012, the VMAPA Hall of Fame serves to recognize and honor volunteers, staff and performers of Vanguard Music and Performing Arts programs who have played a significant and long-term role in the advancement of our organization. Each year, the VMAPA Hall of Fame Committee accepts nominations from the beginning of October through the end of December. In the coming year, the Committee will select new members from those nominations to be inducted at the Annual VMAPA Birthday celebration in March.

(More event and ticket information coming soon!)

Each year the VMAPA Hall of Fame inducts 3 new life-long members who embody the values of Vanguard Music and Performing Arts and will serve as role models for present and future generations. Each new inductee will receive a personalized trophy, and his or her name will be added to a plaque along with other HOF members to be displayed in the Vanguard Hall.
