Hall of Fame to Transition to Wellness Center
BY BONTA HILL
City College’s Hall of Fame will be moved to the Wellness Center from its longtime home in the defunct South Gymnasium, according to head football coach George Rush.
Started in 1985, inductions to the hall were held every five years until 1995.
“The first hall of fame was in 1985, and we did inductions every five years,” said Rush. “To do it every two or three years might have watered the meaning of the hall of fame.”
Because no inductions have been made in 13 years, the athletic department planned to wait until the Wellness Center had been built to rekindle the hall of fame.
Now that the Wellness Center has been built, talks have stalled about the Hall of Fame.
“Due to all the moving and coaches getting their offices together, we as a program have kind of forgot about it,” said Dan Hayes, physical education department chair.
“The faculty, the coaches, and the administration all have to get together and decide on how to get the Hall of Fame back up and running,” Hayes added. “Hopefully in 2010 we can kind of get it going again, and have a nice ceremony.”
