Curtis Ford of Eupora will inducted into the Mississippi Valley State University 2011-12 Athletics Hall of Fame next month.
The Hall of Fame was established in 1955 to recognize graduates of MVSU who have demonstrated outstanding achievements on the athletic field and in the classroom as students at MVSU, and have distinguished themselves in their community and beyond.
The Hall of Fame Selection Committee selects each year worthy candidates from a large pool of qualified applicants. Ford, a baseball/basketball player at MVSU who graduated in 1965, is now assistant principal and girls basketball coach at Eupora High School.
He will be inducted along with 12 other former MVSU athletes during the induction ceremony and dinner at 6 p.m. April 14 in the Lackey Gym on the MVSU campus in Itta Bena.
