Strickland inducted into Hall of Fame
Mississippi’s community and junior colleges recognized their fourth Sports Hall of Fame class on Tuesday, April 27, at the Jackson Hilton Hotel.
Fifteen individuals were honored this year, one from each community college.
The inductee representing Northeast Mississippi Community College was David “Nub” Strickland of Holly Springs, a standout football player at the school (1950, 1953).
The Mississippi Community and Junior College Sports Hall of Fame was conceived in the interest of recognizing outstanding coaches and athletes who have coached and/or played at one or more of Mississippi’s public community or junior colleges.
Acknowledging the fact that there have been many great athletes who have contributed greatly to the successful sports programs throughout the two-year college system, the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges began the Hall of Fame in 2007 to commend men and women who have contributed significantly to the tremendous success of community and junior college sports in Mississippi.
Forty-five individuals were inducted as charter members in 2007, while 30 were inducted in 2008, and 15 were inducted in 2009.
