Illinois State Athletics welcomed five former student-athletes into the ISU Athletics Percy Family Hall of Fame during Homecoming, while honoring a family with the prestigious Stretch Miller Award.
The 2011 inductees included Stacia Beste-Klasen ’01, M.S. ’03, an eight-time Missouri Valley Conference champion in cross country/track and field; football athlete Tony Jones ’95, who was one of 32 national finalists for the 1991 Walter Payton Award; Michael McKenny ’86, a starting point guard for three-straight NCAA Tournament teams; basketball athlete Derrick Sanders ’87, a two-time All-Missouri Valley Conference selection; and soccer athlete Annie Wayland ’04, who holds the school and Valley record for career goals and career points.
The Shirley Lockett Family received the Stretch Miller Award for their commitment to ISU Athletics. Mike and Shirley, who passed away in 2010 of pancreatic cancer, and their children – Rachael, Adam and Kelsey – have been fixtures at Redbird Arena athletic events for close to decade in multiple volunteer roles.
