The Riverwood Athletic Hall of Fame, established in 2012, honors those men and women who made outstanding contributions to Riverwood Athletics. The Hall of Fame is in the entrance hallway of the Tournament Gymnasium.
The purpose of the Hall of Fame is:
- to recognize and honor past students, coaches, and contributors who have brought distinction, honor, and excellence to Riverwood's athletics program
- to maintain connections between alumni and the Riverwood community
- to establish school pride in athletics through recognizing past contributors to the program.
Athletes, coaches, and contributors who have made outstanding contributions to athletics at Riverwood since the school's inception in 1971 are eligible for nomination. Athletes are eligible for nomination five years after graduating.
The idea of a Riverwood Athletic Hall of Fame was conceived by several coaches and teachers in coordination with the Athletic Association. In 2012, former Athletic Director and Head Baseball Coach Mike Santoro organized a Hall of Fame Committee made up of current and former coaches and administrators. Donald Macoy, former Head Girls Soccer Coach and teacher, undertook the momentous task of researching archived information in order to substantiate the merits of potential inductees. The inaugural Hall of Fame class induction took place during Homecoming 2013.
How to nominate: Make nominations directly to the Athletic Director, Mike Mezzio. Mail completed nomination forms with any supporting documentation to the school (5900 Raider Drive, Sandy Springs, 30328), or send via email (Mezzio@fultonschools.org). The deadline is July 31st.
Eligibility for nomination:
*Athlete: Athletes are eligible for nomination five years after graduating from Riverwood
*Coach: Any active, inactive, or retired Coach
*Contributor: Any active, inactive, or retired Contributor (Donor/Volunteer)
Who may make nominations: Raider alumni, Raider faculty, current or retired Raider coaches, and current Riverwood students.
