The class includes Williston native and World Cup mogul ski champion Hilary Engisch Klein.

The event will take place at Trader Duke’s Hotel, 1117 Williston Road, beginning with a 5:30 p.m. induction ceremony followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m. WCAX sports director Mike McCune will be the master of ceremonies. Tickets are available at vermontsportshall.com.

Joining Klein are four-time Olympic cross country skier Tim Caldwell; stock car driver Robbie Crouch; legendary St. Johnsbury Academy track and field coach Ray Frey; collegiate and high school basketball standouts Matt Johnson, Larry Killick and Jen Niebling; longtime Essex High coach/athletic director Melba Masse, a pioneer of girls sports in the state; University of Vermont football great Bobby Mitchell; award-winning sportswriter David Morse; and UVM/NHL hockey star Martin St. Louis.

A portion of the proceeds raised by the event will benefit Prevent Child Abuse Vermont. The event has raised roughly $15,000 for the nonprofit since 2011, when the Vermont Sports Hall of Fame was founded.
