The Iredell County Sports Hall of Fame began in 2016 with a Inaugural Class of 11 members. The Hall of Fame was established to recognize the student-athletes, coaches and administrators for there contributions to athletics in Iredell County. The Harold Johnson Community Partner Award was established to recognize members outside of the actual team (media, business owners, athletic apparel suppliers) that gave to athletics in Iredell County. Each year the committee reviews nominations and votes based on the nomination. After the inaugural class, each year 5 members will be inducted into the Iredell County Sports Hall of Fame.
