She announced the 2014 inductees: 

  • The late Jerald C. Brandt, a former Homewood police chief and commander of the Wally Burns VFW post,
  • William Luke, a teacher who developed Homewood elementary district music programs,
  • Shelly Marks Homewood District 153 board president,
  • The late Arthur F. Senior Jr., a civic leader, founder of the Memorial Chapter of Izaak Walton League, and a photographer who took pictures of parades and around town,
  • Carol Wiksten, a nurse and instructor who developed the original paramedics program at Ingalls Hospital.

“We always have a good time visiting with people and learning about the people who make this town what it was,” Egdorf said.
