“We had many fine nominees who had years of community involvement in their respective sports,” Shigematsu said.  “It was a difficult decision.”

The BISHF will have a ceremony at the Wall of Fame at the Prince Kuhio Mall on August 21 at 10 am.

“We will introduce the seven and display their photos to the wall,” Shigematsu said.  “We are hoping past inductees and the general public will come out to support the newly inducted honorees.”
