The MHSCA Hall of Fame is truly a HALL of Fame. It features a gigantic wall mural which features athletes and coaches in competition. Also, instead of the wall plaques, the new HOF also features a computer kiosk on which will be pictures of all of the inductees of the members of the Hall. The members can be looked up by name, their year of induction and their community or school. With the class of 2015, we will have almost 700 members. 

The MHSCA Hall of Fame is located in a hallway of the Student Activities Center (CAC) located on the campus of Central Michigan University. People who wish to see the hall may access it through the “old” Rose Arena Complex or the SAC entrance.
