Established in 1979, the Kent State University Varsity "K" Athletics Hall of Fame honors men and women whose exceptional performance on the athletic fields and, in later years in other fields, merits special recognition from their alma mater. Each year, the Varsity "K" Hall of Fame inductees, Distinguished Athletic Alumnus, Varsity "K" Person of the Year, Honorary Varsity "K" Member and Team of Distinction are honored at a banquet during football season.
Hall of Fame members are permanently enshrined in the Varsity "K" Hall of Fame located on the second floor of the Memorial Athletic and Convocation Center.

"During my time at Kent State I've learned that I can be as successful as I want to be. With hard work, I believe anything is possible. I also feel like I've also become more patient and well-rounded because of the influence of the people around me. And I know I wouldn't be where I am today in the classroom without the tremendous support we receive academically."
