LEXINGTON - Members of the newest class of the Dawahares/KHSAA Hall of Fame were introduced to the public and enjoyed a round of golf at the 26th Annual Dawahares/KHSAA Hall of Fame Golf Scramble on Tuesday at the Marriott Griffin Gate Resort Hotel.
“It’s amazing to see the support this Hall of Fame enjoys from the people who participate in the scramble every year,” said KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett. “We have Hall of Famers who were inducted more than 20 years ago and they still come back and play every year. It’s such an honor to see the new Hall of Famers introduced for the first time. It’s a great time but it’s also very humbling when you see just how much this honor means to them.”
Representatives of eight of the nine members of the 2013 Class of the Dawahares/KHSAA Hall of Fame were in attendance at Tuesday’s festivities. Members of the 2013 class are Pascal Benson, Julie Ditty, Tyson Gay, Burney Jenkins, the late Roger Klein, Frank Miklavcic, Ron Myers, Jamie Walz Richey and John Dee Wilson.
Two other individuals have previously been voted into the KHSAA Hall of Fame but declined induction at that time. Kelly Coleman (1989) and the late John Reynolds (1994) have yet to accept the honor. They or their representatives would be added to the induction class the year the honor is accepted.
