In the Spotlight...The Cecilian Bank!
The Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame extends a very sincere thanks to our local Cecilian Bank for its tax credit purchase from the National Parks Service. The tax credit was a result of the restoration of our 19th century Church Building. The purchase will provide necessary cash flow to complete displays and exhibits for a July opening date this year. Again, many thanks to Greg Pawley and all the good people at The Cecilian Bank for "closing the deal."
2017 Induction Ceremony
