GREATER FLINT AREA SPORTS HALL OF FAME BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEMBER EMERITUS RECOGNITION 2014

Since 2011 the Board of Directors has honored eight former members for their meritorious service during their years with the Hall of Fame. The eight former members previously receiving EMERITUS recognition are DICK DALY, JOAN LEVEQUE, JIM MASSAR, ERNIE MYERS, JIM RUTHERFORD, CATHY SNYDER, TOM YEOTIS AND FRED BRIGGS.

EMERITUS status is granted to former members of the GFASHOF Board of Directors recognizing their active participation and contributions in the activities and leadership of the organization that exceed what may be considered normal and traditional.

This year the Board of Directors has voted to accord EMERITUS status to TOM COLE and NICK PAPPADAKIS. These gentlemen provided extraordinary leadership over an extended period of time, in a variety of capacities, that enabled the organization to successfully continue their mission of honoring individuals and teams for remarkable achievement in athletics.

MR. COLE was a charter member of the organization and served many significant leadership roles over a twenty-six year period that included being Vice President and President as well as serving on the Selection Committee as Chairperson.

MR. PAPPADAKIS served for twenty-two years, including a very important seven year assignment as Executive Secretary (1984-1991) as well as serving as Vice President (1992-93) and President (1994-95) of the organization.

All EMERITUS selections are permanently listed in the annual induction banquet souvenir booklet and on the About Us page (you may also access the Emeritus selections by using the "About Us" tab).
