Last updated 11/7/2023 at 12:22pm
The ninth annual Outlaw Hall of Fame ceremony is set for Sunday, November 12, at 3 p.m. in the high school commons.
A change from previous years is a move from a full dinner to an afternoon event with appetizers. There is no charge for the event, though donations to the sponsor, the Outlaw Booster Club, will be gladly accepted according to the Hall of Fame Chairman Don Pollard. Any proceeds from the event are used in support of student activities in the Sisters schools.
The Outlaw Hall of Fame's mission is to honor those who have contributed to the rich heritage and traditions of the Sisters School District.
Inductees into the Hall of Fame come from different categories, including individual athletes, coaches, special contributors, teams, organizations, and alums who have done exceptional things in their adult lives.
Inductees this year include Dr. Amber Leis (1998), Dr. Judah Slavkovsky (1999), Ryan Pollard (2013), Jeff and Scott Barton (coach and athlete), Steve Hodges (coach), and the Roundhouse Foundation (organization).
Leis and Slavkovsky, both medical doctors, will serve as guest speakers at the event.
The Hall of Fame has recently purchased a digital kiosk that will be housed in the commons of Sisters High School and will feature all past and future inductees. The kiosk will help alleviate the problem of lack of space caused by the continual addition of plaques for recipients.
"The kiosk is going to be a great way for people to learn about all of our past and present recipients in an interactive format," said Pollard. "It's really cool."
Pollard encourages the community to take part in the ceremony as a way to show appreciation for community partners, past graduates, and staff. "This is a very positive program that gives recognition where recognition is due," he said.
Sponsors of this year's event include Ray's Food Place, Total Property Resources, Ambrose Law Group, Aspen Lakes, Robinson & Owen, Sisters Car Connection, KPD Insurance, the Pollard Family, Sisters Outlaw Photography, and GFP Response.
