The Hiram College softball team will honor the late Myrtis Herndon in a pregame tribute before their contest against Wittenberg on Saturday, April 23.

The ceremony will begin before Game 1 of the doubleheader at 12:45 p.m.

Herndon has left her mark on both the college and the program.

She served as a faculty member at Hiram for over 30 years as a professor in the Physical Education Department.

In addition, Herndon was the head coach of the softball program in the 1993 and 1994 season at Hiram.

Her generous donation to the softball program allowed for the construction of the Terriers’ current softball field, Myrtis E. Herndon Field.

Donations for a flag pole in her honor can be made here.
