Diversity lacking in hall of fame

The front page of the 10/16 CDT lauded the first class of the county’s sports history hall of fame class. Are there no women worthy of being included? No people of color? If, indeed, the hall of fame documents “the deep, rich sports history of Centre County,” why is the inaugural class limited to 11 white males. I do not doubt that John Montgomery Ward deserves recognition, so does Gene Wettstone and Joe Humphreys, but I am sure the nominating committee could have been more inclusive and diverse. Let’s hope a better, more representative group is chosen for the second class.
