Health, Physical Education, & Recreation
Alumni Hall of Honor
The HPER Alumni Hall of Honor recognizes graduates of the Department of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation (HPER) at Emporia State University who have achieved prominence in their chosen field or who have made significant contribution to Emporia State University in the form of service to the HPER department.
Congratulations, 2018 Inductees!
From l-r: John Bell, Gary Smith, Keita Koyama, Jodie Leiss, and Joella Mehrhof.
In 2003 - the first year of the HPER Hall of Honor - 15 Honorees were inducted.
Each year since 2004 five people have been inducted.
Beginning in 2012, an Honorary Inductee has been named; this person does not have to have to be an alum of Emporia State, but rather, someone who has contributed greatly to the success of the HPER Department.
