Award-winning sports writer and editor Ted Ryan of Shelburne is the 2022 David Hakins Inductee for excellence in promotion/coverage of sports and athletics throughout the state. Ryan, like the late Hakins, was a founding member of the Vermont Sports Hall of Fame.
Another dozen inductees from the 2021 Hall of Fame class, who had a virtual ceremony last year due to COVID, also will be honored.
A portion of the proceeds from the dinner will benefit Prevent Child Abuse Vermont, the hall’s designated charity. More than $21,000 has been raised for PCAV through past Hall of Fame banquets.
