Annual Events for Alumni and Friends

Athletic Hall of Fame

Peru State College athletes, coaches and others honored as inductees into the Hall of Fame are recognized for their superlative achievements. They represent the legion of Bobcats who have contributed to Peru State College's rich athletic tradition.

The purpose of Peru State's Athletic Hall of Fame is to foster an appreciation of the past, an enjoyment of the present and an anticipation of future memories to be made by the Bobcat's flourishing 9-sport athletic program. Each year a dinner and induction ceremony is held to honor these athletes.
