Many individuals in the Molloy community lead remarkable lives of faith, honor, service, and excellence. The commitment of these alumni, mentors, and friends to the Marist Mission and to what it means to be a Stanner is humbling, and we are blessed to have their examples inspire our community. Since 1983, Molloy has inducted these men and women into its Stanner Hall of Fame. Molloy identifies candidates who exhibit strong moral character, outstanding academic or athletic achievement, service to their community, and loyalty to alma mater. Any man or woman inducted into the Stanner Hall of Fame embodies the values reflected in our motto, "Not for school but for life." Fame alone is not a sufficient qualifier for induction.
If you know of a candidate worthy of consideration for induction into the Stanner Hall of Fame, please submit a formal nomination in writing, along with a resume or CV (if available), to President Richard Karsten ’81 at [email protected].
The following categories describe the criteria for induction into the Stanner Hall of Fame:
Awarded to an individual whose professional accomplishments, distinctive leadership, and outstanding conduct reflect the values of
Molloy's motto: "Not for school but for life"
Service to Community:
Awarded to an individual whose service to others through volunteerism, faith, and outstanding leadership reflects the values of Molloy's motto: "Not for school but for life"
Loyalty to Molloy:
Awarded to an individual whose extraordinary commitment to Molloy and/or the Marist mission reflects the values of Molloy's motto:
"Not for school but for life"
Awarded to an individual who has made a significant impact on athletics beyond high school and whose conduct reflects the values of Molloy's motto: "Not for school but for life"
In 2013, Molloy re-establish its Stanner Hall of Fame Selection Committee. This committee reviews and ultimately approves candidates for induction based on a majority vote. Active current members include: Mr. Robert Corrigan '63, Mr. Jack Foley '71, Ms. Mary Pat Gannon, Mr. Richard Karsten '81, Mr. Craig Katinas '93, Mr. Matt Rizzotti '04, and Mr. Ed Shannon '84. Four members of the committee are members of the Stanner Hall of Fame (Corrigan, Foley, Gannon, Karsten).
The committee is dedicated to honoring the most deserving individuals for nomination. To reflect these high standards, some original categories have been altered. "Service" now includes exceptional loyalty to alma mater, while athletic achievement is now an important part of the "Professional Achievement" category.
