Three former Newton-Conover graduates were inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame during the winter sports athletic banquet Monday.

Among those inducted were John Tate, Christi Crawford and Tim Elrod.
Tate spent more than 50 years giving various contributions to Red Devil athletics, including coaching officiating and playing.

Tate also worked at the Newton News Enterprise from 1951-1954.
Cranford was inducted for her athletic performance at the school. She finished as all-conference softball and basketball three times (1985-87) and tennis once (1986).

Elrod coached the Newton-Conover men’s and women’s track and field programs for 27 years, guiding his program to its first state championship in 2000.

People are elected to the Hall of Fame by nomination and selected by a committee.

Newton-Conover High School alumni are eligible for the Hall five years after they graduate.
