Darrell Patterson will be the guest speaker
The Grundy County High School Sports Hall of Fame committee recently met to count the votes and determine the Class of 2015. When the votes were tallied, three former male athletes, one female athlete, and a former coach were named to the Hall. Those named were “Big” Jim Fults, Ray Winton, Louie Ladd, Juanita “Fatso” Merrill, and Coach Ed Cantrell.
Legendary Chattanooga sportscaster Darrell Patterson will serve as guest speaker for the banquet. Patterson spent over 40 years covering sports for News Channel 9 in Chattanooga and gave plenty of attention to Grundy County athletes during his years on the air.
“I’m thankful we could secure Darrell as the guest speaker for this year’s banquet. Darrell has been entertaining all of us for years with great coverage of local sports and great stories. It’s an honor for him to come and speak,” said Hall of Fame Chairman David Lowrie.
Profiles on the 2015 inductees will appear in the Grundy County Herald throughout the summer.
Please join the GCHS Sports Hall of Fame Saturday night, August 8, at 6 p.m., in the high school cafeteria as the Class of 2015 is welcomed into the Hall. Tickets will be limited to the first 250 people and more details will be announced closer to the
