Pro Football Hall of Fame Offers Special Program for High School StudentsINDIANAPOLIS – This February, the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, is offering a unique opportunity to high school students across the country. As a part of Black History Month and their ongoing educational programming, the Hall of Fame is hosting a seminar featuring former NFL players Ken Houston and Doug Williams to discuss their football careers and the trials they faced throughout their lives.
The seminar will take place at the Hall of Fame on February 12 and 13, with two sessions each day. While several students will have the opportunity to participate in the program at the Hall of Fame, there is also an opportunity for high schools to tune in via videoconferencing technology. Although it typically costs $35 to establish a videoconferencing line, the Hall of Fame is waiving that fee for any Indiana high school that signs up for the seminar through the Indianapolis Colts.
If your high school has the technology to connect to this seminar through videoconferencing and is interested in taking part in this Black History Month program, please e-mail the Colts Community Relations Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
