Jan Heiteen Inducted Into NFHS National High School Hall Of Fame

University of Illinois graduate receives the honor, regarded as the highest achievable accolade in high school sports and activities.

From ihsa.org:

The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) annually bestows an honor, regarded as the highest achievable accolade in high school sports and activities, upon 12 individuals with their respective enshrinements into the NFHS National High School Hall of Fame. The Illinois High School Association (IHSA) is proud to announce that Downers Grove South High School teacher, head speech coach and drama director Jan Heiteen has been selected as a member of the 2012 inductee class.

“This is an incredible honor for an incredibly deserving individual,” said IHSA Executive Director Marty Hickman. “We are so proud to have Jan represent Illinois, the IHSA and high school speech and drama across the country in this distinguished club. It is very fitting that Jan is the torchbearer among Fine Arts inductees from Illinois in the NFHS National High School Hall of Fame.”

Heiteen is the 24th individual representing the IHSA in the NFHS National High School Hall of Fame and will be formally honored at the enshrinement ceremony banquet on Saturday, July 11 as a part of the 2012 NFHS Summer Meeting in Nashville, Tennessee. Inductees must be nominated by their respective state association and categorized as either Athletes, Coaches, Officials, Administrators or Fine Arts. Heiteen is the first IHSA enshrinee to represent the Fine Arts category.
