The Bucyrus City School District will induct the 2018 class of the Bucyrus Hall of Fame during special ceremonies Saturday, Jan. 19. This year’s class includes four individuals.

The festivities will begin with a reception in the Bucyrus Secondary School Little Theatre prior to the start of the home varsity boys basketball game against Wynford Jan. 19. During the reception, the inductees will be introduced and receive a commemorative plaque. Following the reception, the inductees will be introduced between the junior varsity and varsity basketball games.

The 2018 Hall of Fame class is an exceptional group of individuals,” Hall of Fame committee chairperson Jay Dennison said. “This class is a testament to the ideal of service above self, and each individual embodies the qualities the committee seeks to showcase.”

The 2018 class of the Bucyrus Hall of Fame includes: Sarah Henize, Wanda Miller, David Katterhenrich (posthumously) and Alex Kish (posthumously).

“These individuals have made countless contributions to our district and the Bucyrus community,” Bucyrus Superintendent Kevin Kimmel said. “This is going to be a fantastic night for our district, and I want to personally thank and congratulate each of these individuals for their contributions to the Bucyrus City School District.”
