Warren John F Kennedy
The Warren Sports Hall of Fame was formed in 1988 for the purpose of honoring those men and women in the community who have excelled in athletics or who have made substantial contributions to athletics in the Warren area. The Hall of Fame recognizes players, coaches, managers, trainers, team physicians and athletic directors among others.
Judge Donald R. Ford is credited with laying the groundwork for the organization. Bill White, former All-Star player and former President of Major League Baseball's National League, and Pro Football Hall of Famer Paul Warfield were two of the first inducted.
The Hall of Fame is administered by a board of trustees, which is selected for three year terms by the membership. The Board is led by a Head Coach, two assistant Coaches, a secretary and a treasurer.
The east hallway entrance at the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library houses various display cases honoring those who have been inducted into the Warren Sports Hall of Fame. Each new class of inductees is honored at a Warren G. Harding or John F. Kennedy High School football game and at a formal banquet.
In addition, the organization hosts the annual "PIgskin Preview" and "Heroes Corner" events, as well as luncheon and dinner programs open to the public to bring outstanding speakers into the area.
Membership to the Warren Sports Hall of Fame is open to all, with annual dues set at $25.00. Membership privileges include the right to nominate and vote on inductees and trustees and two free social events - the annual meeting and the induction eve social.
