Chapel Hill, NC - Ronald Scott, former Chatham Central coach, was among eight people selected for induction into the North Carolina High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame. The new inductees were honored during special halftime ceremonies at the Miami at UNC football game at Kenan Stadium on Saturday, October 6. The University of North Carolina has designated the day as the 23rd annual NCHSAA Day.

Ronald Scott was involved over an amazing five decades at one school and built Chatham Central into a strong baseball program during his 36 years as head coach.

A graduate of Bennett High School and Elon College, Scott went to Chatham Central in 1959 and stayed until 1995, winning 520 baseball games in a stellar career but also coaching men's basketball, cross country, and football in addition to serving as athletic director for 26 years during his tenure.

His baseball team won the 1976 2-A state championship and was 1-A runner-up twice, qualifying for the playoffs 14 times and winning 11 conference titles. The Chatham Central baseball facility bears his name and he has continued to assist the school even in retirement.

He has been very involved in civic and church activities, including over 50 years at Prosperity Friends Church, and received a Distinguished Service Award from the NCHSAA in 1996.

Stuart Allen of Charlotte, Daryl Barnes currently of Lexington, Bob Brooks of Elizabeth City, Bill Carver of Fayetteville, Elton Hawley currently residing in Clover, SC, Fred Lanford of Hudson, Bill Rucker of Black Mountain and Ronald Scott of Bear Creek have been chosen as the 21st group of inductees to join the prestigious hall. That brings to 110 the number enshrined.

The new class will officially be inducted at the special Hall of Fame banquet next spring at the George Watts Hill Alumni Center at the University of North Carolina.

The Hall of Fame plaques are on permanent display in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association's Hall of Fame room, located in the Simon F. Terrell Building in Chapel Hill that houses the Association offices..
