Dragon Hall of Fame ceremony returns to Hanna Center in May
Sonoma Valley High School’s Dragon Hall of Fame committee will hold its 2013 induction ceremony for the second consecutive year at the Hanna Boys Center’s impressive new facility on its Arnold Drive campus.
The sixth annual Dragon Hall of Fame event takes place Saturday, May 11, and will honor one coach and one business with special awards, as well as seven individual athletes and one team that won back-to-back titles.
Included in Sonoma’s 2013 Hall of Fame class are former coach Pam Adams accepting the D.A. Pfeiffer Coaches Award, and Broadway Market receiving the Mulas Family Recognition Award, which is named for the late Schellville fire chief and dairy farmer, Mitch Mulas, and his family.
