Nominees to the Hall of Fame are evaluated in seven areas: professional experience, recognition and awards, professional model, research, educational service, community service and leadership. The finalists are selected by the statewide Hall of Fame board of directors.
Crawford said the CCOSA staff nominated him for the honor, and he learned in June that he had been accepted into the Hall of Fame.
“It’s a tremendous honor,” he said. “I never thought of being a Hall of Famer of any kind, so for me it was just a very humbling opportunity to be recognized by my peers.”
