BROUGHT TO YOU BY
Past members of the Columbus Hall of Fame have been honored for their accomplishments, national recognition, or for having a great impact on the city. The categories for nominees include arts & sciences, business, entertainment, military, sports, and miscellaneous if none of those categories seem fit.
The Columbus Hall of Fame 2019 class included Rev. Charles E. Booth (former senior pastor at Mount Olivet Baptist Church), Helen Jenkins Davis (one of the first African American teachers in Columbus), Donna A. James (managing director of Lardon & Associates LLC), and Jim Lormier (co-founder of the annual Arnold Sports Festival).
When you’re making your nominations for the Columbus Hall of Fame 2020 class, the City of Columbus is asking for people to provide as much biographical information about the nominee as possible. If nominating more than one person, the city asks to fill out a separate request.
