Event description

Description

In collaboration with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) Athletics Department and the CMSD (formerly Cleveland Public Schools) Alumni Associations we are documenting the 115-year (1904-2019) history of the CMSD sports programs, athletes, athletic directors, and athletic commissioners to connect the PAST to the PRESENT for the FUTURE. Our vision and mission are as follow:

VISION

To revitalize the high school sports programs within the Cleveland Metropolitan School District and transform student-athletes into legendary athletes who can compete at the collegiate, professional, and international levels.

MISSION

To reestablish a sports model that can be implemented throughout the middle schools and high schools within the Cleveland Metropolitan School District that is sustainable.

This project has ten initial project outcomes:

  1. A Sports Legends Benefit Gala
  2. A Sports Legends Showcase at the Sports Legends Benefit Gala
  3. A Sports Legends History Book documenting a 115-year history (1904 – 2019) highlighting the Athletic Commissioners, Athletic Directors, CMSD Schools, and Sports Legends from the international level down to the senate championship teams and/or individuals
  4. A Sports Legends Documentary highlighting the 115-year history (1904 – 2019)
  5. An unveiling of the past State Championship and Runner-up Banners
  6. A Sports Legends Record Book
  7. An Inaugural Sports Hall of Fame Induction
  8. A Sports Legends Museum located at the CMSD - East Professional Center
  9. College Scholarships
  10. Establishment of an Executive Advisory Board

The Sports Legends Benefit Gala will be held at the Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center on Saturday, October 19, 2019. The gala will attract former and current athletes, coaches, athletic directors, principals, and the community. Its purpose is to unveil the book cover for the history book, bring additional awareness to the project, showcase the sports legends, and fundraise for the documentary.
