Two former VHS athletes have been chosen by the selection committee as 2014 inductees to a prestigious group.
That group is a per year selection of from two to five people to be inducted into the VHS Athletic Hall of Fame.
David Carlton, class of 1978, and Branon Brumley Waters, class of 1997, will be inducted Friday, Dec. 19, at the VHS gymnasium during the basketball game against Fairfield.
As the 7th edition of the Hall of Fame concludes the total number to have been so honored rests at 27.
The Hall of Fame began in 2006 by former VHS athletic director Ross Hill. At that time he selected Don Sanders, Larry Mizell, Jack Gorden, Max Hook, Jon Simmons and Beth Palmer to serve on the committee. This committee remains intact today.
The idea was to recognize former athletes and others who directly or indirectly most aided VHS athletics to the extent it survives admirably. Athletes who are selected must have graduated at least five years prior to being eligible for induction.
