2019 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

May 20, 2019

On Saturday, May 18, following WGI’s 2019 Advisory Board Meetings, the WGI community took a moment to honor three individuals who have been instrumental in the progression of the color guard activity: Eileen Cunningham, William Harty and Daniel Wiles.

As we look forward to next year’s World Championships, it’s important to look back at those who have brought us to this moment. Some of the most forward-thinking and dedicated individuals are now honored as Hall of Fame members. These brilliant minds, matched with decades of inspiration, make it clear that the activity’s future is as bright as ever.

Congratulations Eileen, William and Daniel on your well-deserved induction into the 2019 WGI Hall of Fame!


Eileen Cunningham – Dorchester, MA
William Harty – Glenn Ellyn, IL
Daniel Wiles – Avon, IN
