To: Hutcherson Flying Queens Foundation Members and Associates
And to Flying Queens’ supporters everywhere!
From: Linda Pickens Price, President of the HFQF
I am disappointed to have to relate that the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame has released the names of its Class of 2021 and neither Coach Redin nor Lometa Odom were selected by the Women Veterans Committee for Enshrinement. Pearl Moore was this year’s selection. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaabk/pearl-moore-to-be-inducted-into-basketball-hall-of-fame/ar-BB1gNeqz
She is a worthy recipient and we extend our heartfelt congratulations!
Be assured that the HFQF will continue its active support for the Enshrinement of Coach Redin and Lometa Odom into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. We have already identified additional influential supporters to assist in our efforts for next year. We would like to thank all who wrote letters on behalf of Coach Redin and Lometa. They are both worthy of this honor! We presented a strong case and will do so again next year so keep the faith!
