Community Sports Hall of Fame

Howard County Recreation and Parks is proud to sponsor the Community Sports Hall of Fame. This Hall of Fame serves as a public museum to educate the public in regard to the cultural, historical and personal contributions and achievements of the community of Howard County in respect to community sports.

The Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks, along with an independent committee of individuals from the local sports community, inducted the first members of the Hall of Fame in the Fall of 2005. The Howard County Community Sports Hall of Fame was established in 2005 as a way to honor outstanding persons, living or deceased, who have gained notable and / or have made substantial contributions to Howard County citizens in local community recreational sports.
