Hall of Fame 

Introduction
Each year since its inception in 1997, the Edina Athletic Booster Club, along with the Edina High School Athletic Department, has sponsored an annual Banquet for the Edina Athletic Hall of Fame inducting members of the Edina sports community from the 50s to today. Edina High School and Edina Booster Club personnel have devoted many hours to the selection of the inductees and to the maintainence of the Edina Athletic Hall of Fall.

Philosophy
The Edina Athletic Hall of Fame is a FRIENDRAISER not a fundraiser. Our purpose is to conduct an event which brings honor to the school by highlighting the accomplishments of its alumni, coaches, and friends. The rich tradition of Edina athletics over the years is one the community feels a deep sense of pride. To build on that pride, the Hall of Fame provides the opportunity to sustain the memories and share the moments of the past with former inductees, teammates, and friends.
