CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Three members of the UPEI athletics community will be honoured at the UPEI Sports Legacy Celebration on Thursday. George Morrison, Barb Mullaly (posthumously), and Alanna Taylor will be inducted into the UPEI Sports Hall of Fame at the Nov. 9 event.
The UPEI Sports Hall of Fame was founded in 2001 to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the athletic programs at the University of Prince Edward Island, Saint Dunstan's University, or Prince of Wales College.
Each year, individual athletes, teams, and builders are inducted to honour their contributions towards the university's athletic success or community leadership.
The three inductees will formally take their place in Panther history at the UPEI Sports Hall of Fame Gala Reception and Dinner, which will be held in the UPEI Chi-Wan Young Sports Centre. The reception begins at 6:15 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m.
Tickets are still available for the gala and are $50 each. They can be purchased by dropping by or calling the Panther Central desk at 902-566-0368.
