Make Your Nomination Today for the JCC Athletic Hall of Fame

The JCC is reviving its Athletic Hall of Fame in honor of its 125th anniversary and needs your help in selecting the next entrants. The Hall of Fame recognizes past and current JCC Members for their athletic achievements or future stardom. Nominations are being accepted until Friday, June 12 and can be made by picking up a form at the Health and Wellness Desk.

The Athletic Hall of Fame was created in the 1990’s as a way to recognize the athletic prowess of people from Louisville’s Jewish community. Past award winners have included high school state champions, athletes who have gone on to compete on a collegiate or even professional level. “The JCC Athletic Hall of Fame is our way of acknowledging that important athletes often get their start at the JCC and we as a community should be proud of that,” said Mark Eichengreen, co-chair of the JCC Athletic Hall of Fame Committee.

This year’s Hall of Fame Reception will be held on the afternoon of July 27 with a guest speaker to be announced. The Reception is co-chaired by Mark Eichengreen and Aaron Tasman. Committee members include Ken Porco, Jon Fleischaker, Bruce Miller, Marvin O’Koon and Dan Streit.
