Twelve major contributors to prep athletics in Alabama have been selected to the 25th class of the Alabama High School Sports Hall of Fame, including recently retired Hoover High School Athletics Director (AD) Myra Miles.
Miles served as athletic director at Hoover High School from 2008 to 2014 after serving one year as interim AD. She also taught and coached at Hoover High School from 2002 to 2007. During her tenure, Hoover captured more than twenty state championships in ten different sports.
Miles served on the AHSAA Central Board of Control from 2012 to 2014, was president of the AHSADCA (2013-14) and an officer for five years. She has been active working with special needs students and Special Olympics and helps sponsor a fishing trip for special needs children in Eutaw annually.
Miles is a graduate of Bradshaw High School (1979) in Florence and the University of North Alabama (1984). She also attended Freed-Hardeman College.
The 18-member Hall of Fame Committee made the selections from the 50 nominations on the Hall of Fame ballot. The Hall of Fame is located at the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) office in Montgomery.
The 2015 class, which includes coaches, administrators, officials, media and others, will be inducted at a special Silver Anniversary banquet commemorating all 25 years of the Hall of Fame at the Renaissance Hotel at the Convention Center in Montgomery on March 23.
