Honoring state championship teams is becoming more wide-spread throughout the community college system in California.
About the Hall of Fame:
The LAHC Foundation Board approved participating in the development of an annual celebration of champion athletes, teams, and coaches.
The committee is made up of former coaches Jim O’Brien, Chairman, Jim White, and LAHC Foundation Board members, Juanita Naranjo, Dave Gascon and Jim Stanbery, former athlete Buddy Parks, Journalist Steve Marconi, Dean of Student Affairs Nina Malone, Physical Education Division Chair Nabeel Barakat, and Joe Marino, Mickey Teora, and Dick Harris. This dedicated committee has been meeting monthly to develop criteria for nomination and a method whereby contributions can be made.
The first, or inaugural Hall of Fame event took place on Friday, September 7, 2007, at 6:00 p.m. at Simon’s in San Pedro. The anticipated crowd of 200-250 former athletes, spouses, family and friends quickly mushroomed to 340 attendees.
The honorees also participated in the first football game in our new stadium on Saturday night, September 8, 2007 at 5:00 p.m. They were honored during half-time.
