Being inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame is the highest honor an Oklahoman can receive from the state. Since the Oklahoma Hall of Fame’s inception in 1927, 677 accomplished individuals have received this commendation. The names of the Hall of Fame members, as well as busts and portraits of these individuals, can be seen at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum. In addition, the inductees are recognized on granite monuments in the Heritage Plaza at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds.
The 2016 Oklahoma Hall of Fame Class will be announced on Thursday, May 19, 2016.
The 2015 Honorees are Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City; Jim Halsey, Tulsa; Bill Hancock, Hobart; Mike Larsen, Perkins; William Ross, Oklahoma City; Sharen Jester Turney, Ardmore; Steadman Upham, Tulsa; and Francis Theodore Tuttle, Wellston, who was inducted posthumously.
