The Sacramento Sports Hall of Fame will also be honoring a local Special Olympics athlete, Shawn Lemmon, as an inductee!
Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous supporter, we have 20 tickets available to attend the event for only a $30 donation to support Special Olympics.
These tickets are only available by calling Gina at 920-562-3774.
A decorated Special Olympics athlete of more than 15 years, Shawn competes in basketball and swimming and has qualified for the last eight Special Olympics Northern California Summer Games. He was also selected as an alternate for Team NorCal at the 2014 USA Games in New Jersey. Shawn is involved with Therapeutic Recreation Services (TRS) in Sacramento, where he takes classes and participates in recreational activities such as dances. He previously attended Sierra College, is currently part of the Dream Theater Program and is an avid singer, dancer and actor. Described as having a big heart and a passionate kindness for others, Shawn always goes above and beyond for his teammates and demonstrates admirable sportsmanship – win or lose. He epitomizes the spirit of Special Olympics and is loved and respected by teammates, coaches and opponents.
SONC's 2018 nominees for the Sacramento Sports Hall of Fame included Robert Clemons, Karissa Krater, Nicole LaCaro, Holley Matlack and Lemmon.
