Clark College’s greatest athletes honored at Hall of Fame induction ceremony
Seven individuals and a perfect team were honored as the first inductees into the Clark College Athletic Hall of Fame at a ceremony on Saturday, Feb. 25. The honorees are Karen (Remy) Morgan Hill, Jacob “Vern” Kindsfather, Randy Myers, Claude “Skeet” O’Connell, Jim Raines, Gaydena Thompson, Mary Lou White, and the college’s undefeated 1992-1993 women’s basketball team. Family members accepted posthumous awards on behalf of White and Kindfather. Clark College athletic legend O’Connell wasn’t able to attend, but received his award at his home last Thursday.
Clark College president Robert K. Knight announced the honorees during the 2012 State of the College Address in January. Knight credited former interim athletic director Dennis Huston and members of the Penguin Athletic Club for their “leadership and vision” in making the Hall of Fame a reality.
