HALL OF CHAMPIONS STEERING COMMITTEE MINUTES
The TSSAA Hall of Champions
Steering Committee met on
The committee members present were: Lynn Brown (East), Gene Beck (Middle), Wayne Hobbs (Middle), Carolyn Ridley (Middle), Faye Osteen (West), and Billy Schrivner (West). Presiding over the meeting was Ronnie Carter, Committee President, and Heather Carter, member of the Hall of Champions staff.
Discussion on the TSSAA Hall of Champions Benefit Basketball games was held. After reviewing the 2005 game expenses report, it was decided that we recommend to the TSSAA Board of Control that we begin receiving 75% of a host school’s gross gate.
Action of the TSSAA Board of Control on
A copy of the 1982 – 2006 Hall of Fame Directory was presented to each board member. Each family in the TSSAA Hall of Fame was sent one copy of this directory. It includes a head shot and brief information on each Hall of Fame member from 1982 to 2006. The board decided that we should include addresses of members in future issues.
The price of the books will remain the same ($29.95 hardcover; $24.95 softcover). We will continue to target our member schools and public libraries across the state. Upon the suggestion of Mr. Wayne Hobbs, we will begin contacting local banks to have them possibly donate books to schools in its areas, especially those holding school accounts.
We are researching the possibility of obtaining ISBN numbers for the books. This is a number registered with the Library of Congress, and is necessary in order to sell the books in major retail chains.
The concept for the Hall of Champions website was presented to the board. There were no changes or additions made.
We will begin a column in each issue of the TSSAA News featuring articles on our champions from past to present.
