Alumni Hall of Fame
2020 and 2021 Inductee Recognition

It was with great anticipation that we established the Ohio State Marion Alumni Hall of Fame. We were excited to honor our alumni for their successes and to learn about their achievements in the workplace, home, and in their communities. Just as we were set to celebrate the dedication and induct one member from each of Ohio State Marion’s five decades, the university placed all events on hold temporarily as the coronavirus started sweeping through Ohio. Little did we know how much would change over the next year. Currently, the university is planning to allow some in-person events in the fall of 2021 with many precautions being taken. We plan to celebrate the 2020 and 2021 inductees in one ceremony this fall as we feel it is important to proceed, even if the event will be limited. We have learned how to make better use of technology over the past 12 months and will certainly use what we have to our advantage in our planning.
