WINSTON COUNTY - The Board of Directors for the Winston County Sports Hall of Fame has made the decision to cancel this year's induction ceremony, which would have taken place in July, due to concerns regarding Coronavirus-2019, or COVID-19.
The ceremony, which is always held in the Haleyville Elementary School Cafetorium, attacts average crowds of 200 persons, which would be putting people in close proximity to one another if the virus is still being contracted in the summer.
"I discussed it with the entire board of directors, and for this year only, we decided this was the best move to make," Bob Masdon, Winston County Sports Hall of Fame director, said.
Nominations for the honor had not been accepted yet for this year, Masdon added.
