The Johnston County Athletic Hall of Fame inducted its first class in 2007. Since then, a total of 55 deserving men and women from Johnston County have been inducted.
It has been the goal of Johnston County Schools to recognize the efforts and accomplishments of these dedicated athletes, coaches, and support personnel. On Oct. 27, JCS established a permanent display of all inductees as a way to say thank you to the individuals who have helped shape athletic history in Johnston County.
The Johnston County Athletic Hall of Fame display is located at 211 Rose Street in Smithfield in the JCS West Campus Building and can be viewed during regular business hours Monday through Friday.
Nominations for possible future inductees can be made through the athletic director at each high school. The class of 2015 will be inducted on March 28, 2015 at South Johnston High School.
Tickets may be purchased at any high school beginning in February. For questions about the Johnston County Athletic Hall of Fame contact JCS Director of Athletics Ray Stott at 919-934-6031.
