Inductee Council

The Inductee Council of the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame was created to encourage greater involvement from our greatest resource—the members of the Hall.  Our past inductees join together to make the Hall a better place.  This council plays a vital role in supporting, advising, and contributing to our efforts of educating the sports community of Tennessee.  Additionally, the Inductee Council helps advocate the importance of preserving sports heritage throughout the state.

We want to recognize all current and future inductees in the most positive environment, by highlighting your achievements both past and present.  Each year, we look forward to recognizing and honoring our inductees at the annual Reunion of Champions Reception and Induction Banquet, including in the program.  We also encourage our members to attend as many functions as possible throughout the year.  Inductee Council members can also nominate and vote on individuals or teams to be honored with the Champion Within award.  The Champion Within Lunch is an exciting event that gives us a chance to celebrate the success of outstanding individuals that have excelled in their field who display the qualities of champions in all works of life.  It is through members’ support, input, and presence at Hall of Fame events that they contribute to the success of this great fraternity of athletes.


By joining the Inductee Council, you make is possible for us to pass on the lessons of sports to our next generation of Tennesseans through our Champion Within program, to continue to preserve the sports heritage of our great state, and to operate the Hall of Fame museum. In the past, donations have ranged from $100-$5,000. We greatly appreciate any contribution you are able to make. Thank you for your support!
