Instead of a biennial affair, the individuals will be inducted and recognized every three years. The next event will be slated for November 2019. In a press release, Lana Jacobson, board emeritus for the Grand Haven Schools Foundation, said the board will have additional time to "research, document and archive histor ical information gleaned from the nomination process." "We want to ensure that our inductees' accomplishments are recorded for future generations," she said. Since it began in 2008, 62 individuals and four athletic teams have been inducted into the GHHS Hall of Fame. It started as a way to honor Grand Haven graduates who have been successful and served society and the schools. It also serves as a way for the community to celebrate excellence in education. The people inducted into the Hall of Fame "are cited as individuals who have distinguished themselves in their lives and careers, and attribute their success, in part, to the Grand Haven community," according to the press release. Nominations are accepted in five categories: athletic a c h i e v e m e n t , c a r e e r / a ca d e m i c a ch i e ve m e nt, cultural/performing arts, service to GHAPS/society, and Honorary Award for Service to GHAPS. Nominations are being accepted now through May 17, 2019. Once a nomination is submitted, it does not need to be submitted again for consideration in the future. The event serves as a major fundraiser for the Grand Haven Schools Foundation. To d o w n l o a d a nomination form or for more information, visit Completed nomination forms can be mailed to the Grand Haven Schools Foundation, P.O. Box 272, Grand Haven, MI 49417; or delivered to the GHAPS Education Services Center, 1415 S. Beechtree St. in Grand Haven. Emailed nominations can be sent to GHHS pushes next HOF event to 2019 GHAPS Spring Lake's marching band turned in its best score of the season on Saturday at the East Kentwood Band Invitational.

A creepy good time A small but terrifying collection of zombies descended upon downtown Grand Haven on Saturday. The Grand Haven Zombie Walk was originally scheduled for Oct. 28, according to organizer Barb Carlson's post on the event's Facebook Page. Carlson noted in the message that the "general consensus is that the Zombie Walk should take place on the 21st rather than the 28th." The late change of date may have contributed to a smaller-than-average turnout for the popular event. However, those who participated in the walk helped make it a spooky endeavor, with adults and kids alike dressed in torn and bloody clothing, with elaborate makeup jobs helping complete the costumes.
