Marengo County SHOF calls for nominations

As the Marengo County Sports Hall of Fame prepares for the gala tenth annual banquet and induction ceremony to be held the second week in February of 2018, the selection committee is looking for additional nomination packages of sports figures with connections to Marengo County.

The packages should include a letter of recommendation, a biography setting out personal information on the person such as work and family, plus, of course, a sketch of his or her experiences, activities and honors connected with that person’s athletic history. In addition, the package should include a clear photo, either in uniform or civilian head and shoulders picture, suitable for insertion in newspaper stories, banquet program and etched into the plaque to be presented to the honoree at the banquet.

The nomination package should be mailed or delivered to Tom Boggs at his law office in Demopolis, PO Box 784, or to Tony Speegle at 1012 Jacob Drive in Demopolis.
