Announcing the Nido de Aguilas Athletic Hall of Fame

Together with the Nido Alumni Association, Nido is pleased to announce the launch of the new Nido de Aguilas Athletic Hall of Fame.

The Nido de Aguilas Athletic Hall of Fame will recognize and honor athletes, coaches, individuals, and teams who have made outstanding contributions either to the development of these athletes or to the excellence of the athletic program of The International School Nido de Aguilas.

Athletic Director Claudia Araya notes, "Nido has been very privileged all these years with amazing student-athletes and people that have contributed to build the athletic program that we have now. It is now our chance to honor them for what they have meant to Nido".

Throughout Nido's long history there have been athletes, coaches, and teams of great accomplishments, and the school looks forward to inducting the first members to the Nido de Aguilas Hall of Fame. This new initiative will give long overdue recognition to these exceptional and valuable participants of the athletic program at Nido.

"For a great number of alumni, athletics were an important element of their Nido experience and development," says Maya Westcott, President of the Nido Alumni Association. "The Nido Alumni Association is grateful for this opportunity for alumni to reconnect with the School. It will undoubtedly serve as a source of inspiration for future generations of student athletes."

Nominations are accepted until July 31, 2017 by email to athletics@nido.cl. The categories available for nominee are Athlete, Coach, Team, and Significant Contributor. To see more about the categories, eligibility requirements, or to nominate someone please view the full application here.
