Hodges said the experience also was beneficial for him because he was able to catch up with old classmates.
"I thought it was great," he said. "It also gave me a chance to connect with a lot of friends of mine that I haven't seen in 20 or 30 years."
Hodges was one of three inductees who were chosen by the committee last year. But there are some years where it is possible that no inductee be chosen.
"It depends on the nominations. You can have one, or, I remember a few years back there were four or five," said Casey. Casey said he only knows of one year where there were no hall of fame inductees.
This year, Casey predicts there will be at least one, maybe two, inductees. Casey also said the committee is discussing whether the inductees will be given a two-to-three minute slot to speak about their work.
You can nominate yourself for the hall of fame. If you would like to nominate yourself, or someone you know, contact the main office at Colonie Central High School at 459-1220 by May 15.
