The mission of the Little Miami Athletic Hall of Fame is to recognize athletes, coaches and contributors who have made a substantial positive impact on the athletic program at Little Miami High School.

The Hall of Fame came about after a group of former and current coaches, athletes and administrators worked for more than a year to gather athletic records and to establish group by-laws and honoree selection criteria. The group seated its first selection committee in September 2017. Currently serving on the committee are:

  • Current Little Miami Boys' Coach: Pam Rothermund
  • Current Little Miami Girls' Coach: Felisha Hartmann
  • Community Member: Rick Lovins
  • Community Member: Jake Pennix
  • Athletic Booster Member-at-Large: Cheravon Davidson
  • Athletic Booster Member-at-Large: Patty Wehrung
  • LM Athletic Director: Keith Pantling
  • Retired Coach/Administrator: Tim Martin
  • Retired Coach/Administrator: Gary Duermit

LMHS will host a dinner for honorees, guests and fans on Saturday, Jan. 25 in the multi-purpose gym. Following the program, honorees will be introduced at halftime of the Little Miami v. Kings men’s basketball game. The event begins at 5:30 p.m.

The public is invited to attend. Tickets may be purchased here.
