NEWBERRY COLLEGE LETTERMEN'S CLUB

Welcome from Lettermen's Club

Newberry College has experienced much success in athletics. As former Lettermen, all of you share in the success of these athletes and are invited to become a member of the Lettermen's Club. It is our purpose, as members of the Lettermen’s Club, to promote the welfare of all Newberry College athletic programs. The Lettermen’s Club places special emphasis on the recognition of former outstanding athletes at the annual Hall of Fame Banquet and rewards current athletes with Block N Letters. In 2009, we reinstated the senior athlete awards to those seniors who have lettered.

All members are encouraged to participate in the Lettermen’s Club by volunteering to serve on the board, by encouraging fellow Lettermen to join the club, by nominating an outstanding athlete for the Hall of Fame, and by attending the Hall of Fame banquet in the Fall. The Hall of Fame Nomination Form and Lettermen’s Club Membership Application can be found on this website.

History of the Hall of Fame

The Lettermen's Club was organized in 1976 for the purpose of recognizing and celebrating the accomplishments of Newberry College's athletes over the years. Soon after its organization, the Club established the Newberry College Hall of Fame and adopted guidelines for being inducted into the Hall of Fame. Since its inception in 1976, over 200 athletes have been inducted.
