Sponsored jointly by the Virginia High School League and the Virginia High School Coaches Association, the hall "is dedicated to preserving the rich heritage of outstanding achievements by students and adults in sports and activities within Virginia’s public high schools."
Here's what the Virginia High School League had to say about Mr. Hunt:
No individual school principal has contributed more to the growth and progress enjoyed by the Virginia High School League than Doug Hunt.
As a principal of three high schools – Highland Springs, Hermitage and Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School – he has made a positive difference that has benefitted thousands of participants in VHSL sports and activities.
During his 10 years on the VHSL Executive Committee, he served as Group AAA secretary, vice-chairman, and chairman and League chairman. He was instrumental in the development of new programs and services provided by the League. Through his leadership, he introduced the first catastrophic insurance coverage for students; oversaw the planning and construction of the VHSL headquarters and the formation of the Virginia High School Hall of Fame; served as steering committee chairman responsible for setting the overall direction of the VHSL; strengthened the VHSL Sportsmanship Rule; established the annual basketball officials camp and first coaches education initiative and created the first VHSL scholarship program – Col. Charles E. Savedge Scholarship recognizing the VHSL Journalist of the Year.
His distinguished legacy is unsurpassed by any other school administrator.
He is retiring this year as the principal at Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School.
