The Cleveland County Fellowship of Christian Athletes Sports Hall of Fame was started in 1965 recognizing those in our community who have made outstanding contributions in the field of Sports and Recreation. In the fall of 2004 the Hall found a permanent home in the newly renovated Shelby Community Center at City Park. On display are the pictures and dates of every person that has been inducted in to the Hall of Fame for all to see and enjoy.

Cleveland County Sports Hall Of Fame: This award is given each year to the person(s) or team selected as having made the contribution and/or brought great recognition to our community in sporting endeavors. This award is based on cumulative as well as current achievements. The person must be a native of our community or have lived in the community during his/her significant athletic achievement.
