Gateway honor roll Class of 2014 trio selected for induction
The Gateway Hockey Alumni Association will celebrate its three-member alumni honor roll Class of 2014 at its sixth�annual alumni winter event Dec. 26 at Center Ice Arena in Delmont.
Chris Masters and Derek Smith, both 1992 graduates, and Scott Lyon, a 2006 graduate, will be enshrined in a ceremony during alumni activities that day.
In addition to the induction ceremony, there will be a skills competition involving Gateway hockey alumni and the annual Black-White alumni game.
The winning team in the alumni game takes possession of the Golden Gator trophy, and each player has their name engraved on the trophy.
The alumni winter event is one of two fundraising events each year to support Gateway hockey families and players.
The other event is the golf outing in June.
Each year, the Gateway Hockey Alumni Association engages in a four-month process to select hockey alumni for the Gateway hockey honor roll.
The honor roll acknowledges alumni who have contributed to the legacy of Gateway hockey both on and off the ice. It recognizes the contributions made to the organization and the community.
The process begins in June with the publishing of a nomination ballot.
Alumni family and friends can vote for candidates on the ballot until the middle of August.
At that time, the five alumni with the highest number of nomination votes are placed on the election ballot, and votes are taken and tabulated until the middle of October.
The three alumni with the most election votes become the induction class.
