Hall of Fame Information
The Pioneer Hall of Fame was founded by Transylvania’s Alumni Office and the Athletics and Physical Education Department to recognize former athletes, coaches, and others who have made outstanding contributions to the field of athletics while bringing honor to Transylvania University. The latest additions bring the total number of Pioneer Hall of Fame members to 128, plus two teams, since inductions began in 1992.
Those eligible to be nominated for the Pioneer Club Hall of Fame include:
- Alumni who graduated no less than 10 years prior to the year of induction
- Coaches with at least five years of service at Transy and 15 years of coaching experience who have been away from Transy for at least five years.
- Individuals who have made significant contributions to Transylvania athletics in ways other than playing and coaching.
- A team becomes eligible for nomination ten (10) years after competition and must have brought national recognition to Transylvania University.
