There’s a rich sports heritage at Parkland High School. But up to now, there has never been an avenue for the Mustangs to honor the career achievements of their top athletes, coaches and administrators in a formal setting. That’s no longer the case.

Parkland has established a Sports Hall of Fame for the first time in the 50-year history of the school. Induction ceremonies are set for Sept. 1. The first class of honorees will be recognized at Parkland’s home football game against Winston-Salem Prep on Sept. 2.

“I don’t know why it’s taken so long for this to come to pass,” said Linwood Jerald, Parkland’s athletics director. “The program has gone through some ups and downs over the past 50 years. But the organizing committee has put in a lot of work since last spring, and we’re going to make this happen. These are some exciting times for Parkland athletics.”

Nominations are now being accepted for the Hall of Fame. All nominations must be accompanied by hard-copy documentation in order to be considered by members of the Hall of Fame’s selection committee.

To start the nomination process, go to the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools web site at  Click on “Select a School” and look for the “High School” tab, then choose Parkland. Once you’re on the school’s site, click on the “Athletics” tab and go to “Parkland High School Sports Hall of Fame” in the drop-down menu.

To complete the process, download the nomination form and follow the instructions as outlined. The deadline for accepting all nominations is April 15.
