As well, Indy welcomes home Herschell Turner back to Indy to reflect on his illustrious hardwood career and basketball chatter and rivalry between Turner and Oscar Robertson of Crispus Attuciks H.S. In the mid 1950's the two literally battled each other for bragging rights on the basketball floor. Turner currently resides in Grand Rapids, MI.
Turner, likewise, will be inducted into the Shortridge Hall of Fame on June 8th. Turner's biography is filled with major accomplishments beyond athletics where he earned a solid reputation as an educator, businessman, civic and community leader, and superior artist whose works have been shown and sold around the globe.
It will be a great opportunity for you to visit with each of these legends at a social gathering Friday evening from 5p until at The New Orleans On the Avenue Restaurant (all you can eat catfish night).
Everyone is invited to attend the Hall of Fame and Judicial Wall of Fame ceremonies to learn more about the superior professional accomplishments of each of the aforementioned honorees.
