East Ohio Region Hall of Fame

The East Ohio Region Hall of Fame was established by our Board of Governors in 1991. The idea and early draft was presented to the board by Robert Schluneker, Sr. the prior year. The award recognizes the people who have made significant contributions of their time and effort to help the East Ohio Region and N.C.C.C. prosper. All the members have very different backgrounds but the ownership of the Chevrolet Corvette has brought them together. Just as the Corvette is a prestigious automobile, such is the honor to obtain this award.

The East Ohio Region inducted their first members in 1992 into the newly created East Ohio Region Hall of Fame.  In that year, a total of six (6) nominees were inducted.  Each year thereafter, a MAXIMUM of three (3) nominees are to be inducted.
