We are honored to announce the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame’s first Student-Athlete Program Virtual Panel presented by NC Farm Bureau: "Legends of Today, Leaders of Tomorrow". The Student-Athlete Program's goal is to engage, inspire and support NC youth and their development through sports history education. This panel is a selection of Hall of Fame inductees and professional and up-and-coming athletes. Through this live discussion, we hope to encourage young NC student-athletes to keep dreaming, work hard, and become leaders in their communities. Student-athletes from all over the state were invited to listen and ask questions.
