Shorty ' s " Hall of Fame " Dream Realized The dream of Rock Island High School athletic director AAr. H.V. " ' Shorty ' ' Almquist came true February 9th as Rocky ' s prep " Hall of Fame " was unveiled. The unveiling took place in the fieldhouse during halftime of the Rocky-AAoline basketball game. Three " Hall of Fame " boards were planned, but only two were unveiled over the southeast and southwest entrances. The third will be added later. The southeast board carries pictures of all of the twenty-two State champions in the history of Rocky. The southwest board contains pictures of the twenty-six " All- State " men, athletes who have been honored for excel¬ lence in team sports. Pictures of Rocky athletes who earned major letters in three different sports in one school year will eventually be on the third board. The purpose of the " Hall of Fame " was to recog¬ nize and honor Rocky ' s great athletes, establish in the hearts of youth a motivating influence to excel in athlet¬ ics, and to foster and preserve good sportsmanship, scholarship, and citizenship in our school, city, and com¬ munity. ROCK ISLAND ' S ALUMNI who qualified for the " Hall of Fame " are recognized during the half-time of the Rock Ijiand-Moline game. 225
