A Message from Our President

On behalf of our Board of Directors, I would like to welcome the inductees into the 55th class of the Bob Elias Kern County Sports Hall of Fame. It's good to be back after our absence last year. All five of these inductees are outstanding individuals in their respective athletic endeavors and all five are world-class athletes. For the first time in the Hall’s history, three women are welcomed in the same class. They all have represented and continue to represent this city, county, state and nation with dignity and distinction.

Including the Class of 2022, 230 individuals have been inducted into the Bob Elias Kern County Sports Hall of Fame. Congratulations to Mary Margaret Revell-Goodwin, Jeremy Staat, John Tarver, Shelly Wallace, and Melisa Weis-Barron.

We thank you for your support.

Chad Manning, President
