Athletic Hall of Fame

Casady's Celebration of Alumni

The purpose of the Athletic Hall of Fame is to honor outstanding Cyclones who have not only brought recognition to Casady, but established in the hearts and minds of our youth a motivating influence to excel, foster pride, preserve good sportsmanship, scholarship, and citizenship in the greater Casady Community, and to deepen alumni relationships. 
Casady’s Homecoming has traditionally celebrated Alumni Awards for: Distinguished Graduate, Alumni Achievement and Young Alumni Achievement as well as Class Reunions. As Homecoming grows to honor Cyclone athletes, coaches, teams, and contributors, we look forward to celebrating Cyclone Athletics, and the impact it has on the spirit of the School. We are excited not only to thank and recognize those who have inspired us, but to also give current students and families another lasting blueprint for success.
