The Vermont Sports Hall of Fame (VtSHF)will soon unveil its inaugural class for induction, according to Dave Hakins, chairman of the VtSHF Board of Directors.
“Inductees are being honored for their significant contributions to the legacy of Vermont sports,” said Hakins.
The public nomination phase has concluded and the VtSHF’s sports committees are preparing their nominations for the selection committee. The public nominated many worthy candidates. The sports committees may also nominate athletes, coaches, officials, media, and other contributors to Vermont’s sports culture.
Those selected for induction will be announced in early September. Formal induction ceremonies will take place at a dinner Nov.17 at the Doubletree Hotel in South Burlington.
The Hall of Fame Board is also conducting an online auction of sports memorabilia, experiences, gift certificates, and other items. The auction will be open for bids from Sept. 5 to 19. More details will be announced soon. Items can be previewed at a link through the VtSHF website at http://vermontsportshall.com.
