Hall of Fame
We are thrilled to announce that the Tennessee Senior Olympics established a Hall of Fame in 2017. Scores of exceptional athletes and key volunteers have graced our system. Honoring these individuals will be an exciting time for our organization.
The purpose of the Tennessee Senior Olympics HALL OF FAME is to recognize and honor outstanding athletic performances as well as outstanding contributions that have made our organization successful.
We will open up nominations in early 2024.
