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.
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.
