KSCB News - January 13, 2013 12:38 am
On the heels of a successful inaugural Hall of Fame Class induction in the Spring of 2012, the Saints Hall of Fame voting committee has made its decision on the second Hall of Fame Class, the Class of 2013. Three members will be enshrined at the Athletics Banquet on April 19th in the Greenhouse. Long time boosters Brent Gould and Charles Brownlee will join Saints basketball legend Tony Slaughter to represent the Hall of Fame’s second class.
Gould was one of three original Saints Booster Club Lifetime Members, donating a substantial sum to get the Booster Club on its feet. He was a permanent fixture at Seward County home and road events throughout the years. In 1996 the Saints baseball field was named after Gould in recognition of his support and passion for Seward County baseball. Slaughter is the all-time leading scorer in Saints history with 1,548 career points. His 26.7 points per game over his career are nearly 4.5 points more than second place on the career scoring list. He is the only player in school history to score more than 675 points in each of his two seasons and his 873 points during his sophomore year are the second most single season points scored in school history. He was a two-time 1st Team All-Jayhawk West and 1st Team All-Region VI selection for the Saints. Brownlee has given over 40 years of service to Seward County CC. Before becoming a regular as a fan in the Greenhouse, Brent Gould Field, and Lady Saints Softball Field, Brownlee served as a track coach, bus driver, and Athletic Director for the Saints. Brownlee was a longtime member of the Board of Directors for the Saints Booster Club and also served on the Saints Athletics Hall of Fame Committee. He, along with his wife Evelyn, have established the Brownlee Science and Math Endowment Fund for student scholarships, with preference given to a Lady Saints Basketball player.
Following the selections for this year’s class, the Hall of Fame committee is already hard at work in an effort to secure nominees for the class of 2014
