Sports Hall of Fame
will be point of pride

Members of the Rotary Club of Lawrence County are quite excited about their new project to establish a Lawrence County Sports Hall of Fame. In case you missed the announcement, the club is now accepting nominations for its first class of inductees through Jan. 31.

Not only is the Hall of Fame for former high school, collegiate or professional athletes, but it will also recognize outstanding coaches, teams or friends of sports who have made a contribution by their support of sports. Rotary members envision having a mix of inductees, both living and deceased, from all parts of Lawrence County. (To be nominated as a high school or college athlete, the individual must be out of school for at least 10 years.
