May 31, 2022 – Today, Collinsville Community Unit School District #10 announced the creation of a Hall of Fame to celebrate accomplishments of the many Kahoks who have brought positive recognition to our community over the years.
Superintendent Dr. Mark B. Skertich shared the Hall of Fame news in the following letter:
On behalf of the district and Board of Education, I am excited to announce the creation of the Collinsville Community Unit School District #10 Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame has been established to recognize students, alumni, community members and employees for individual and team successes, and other notable accomplishments.
I have been fortunate to interact with many different people from our communities the past three years. Our talks often turn to the amazing things our students, staff, alumni and community members have accomplished. Kahok Nation is a special place and we have a rich history to celebrate. The timing is right for the establishment of the Collinsville CUSD #10 Hall of Fame.
In recent weeks, I have met with district and community leaders to envision how to best capture Kahok Pride and honor the accomplishments of individuals and teams who have brought recognition and distinction to our community. We plan to gather nominations this summer and induct the Collinsville CUSD #10 Hall of Fame Class of 2023 during a special event in February. Next week we will announce more details about this exciting endeavor.
Our district has numerous individuals and teams that are deserving of this kind of recognition. We hope to memorialize their accomplishments for the Collinsville School District and our respective communities to share and embrace for generations to come.
Mark B. Skertich Ed.D.
