Reimagine and Redesign the Hall of Honor Display

We only have three spots left on our wall, which means…it is time to reimagine and redesign the Hall of Honor Display. The timing is perfect as the school district is planning some work on that side of the building to create a better and safer entry. They have committed to offering us the infrastructure with which to build a new display in the same space.  I have added a photo of the measurements of our space. The wall is 9.5 feet tall and 17.5 feet wide. The usable space for the display is probably 7.5 feet high. There will be electrical, video and internet infrastructure as well as display lighting.

We have a request to all of you out there in Islander Nation who like design. We need a new design for our Hall of Honor Wall. It needs to do all of the following: use the space allocated, have the ability to be updated and added to over time, give us the opportunity to see the photos and read the stories/biographies of these esteemed graduates, be interactive, be pleasing to the eye, and of course, tell the story of not only the success of these Islanders but their heart for humanity.

It is a tall order. But we know that you can do it. Send us a drawing of your thoughts. We plan to pull a committee of alumni together to review the ideas and select a design that can be made into a lasting legacy wall. I mean, that would be neat, right? To have your design grace the wall of your alma mater?

You can email your design to or you can mail it to GIPS Foundation, PO Box 4904, Grand Island, NE 68802. Please be sure to note who it is from and a way for us to contact you. We would like your design ideas by May 31. 

We can’t wait to see your design ideas!
