The late football and girls basketball coach Brownie Robinson will be inducted along with former football star Ricky Baker and 5-on-5 girls basketball standout Jill Gwaltney.
Rounding out the five-member class are ground-breaking Olivia Seay -- the first African-American educator at WHS and retired school secretary Virginia Ann Huddleston.
Coach Robinson spent 11 years as the Tiger head man and compiled a record of 72-37-5 (a .631 winning percentage), including back-to-back 10-1 seasons in 1970 and 1971
Baker was a two-sport star, playing football and basketball while Gwaltney is the all-time leading scorer in the five-on-five era of basketball with 1,625 career points.
The five will be recognized at a Saturday, Nov. 5 dinner and induction ceremony. Tickets are $25 per person and are on sale at the WHS main office.
