Festivities will begin with a luncheon at the Highland Convention Center Heritage Room beginning at 11:45 a.m. The induction ceremony will take place that evening between the boys’ and girls’ varsity basketball games with Dodge City in the Great Bend High School gymnasium. A reception will follow the games in the Jack Kilby Commons. Everyone is encouraged to stay to visit with the inductees.
