2015 MUM Hall of Fame Inductees: Elaine Stephenson, Jeff Stiver, Kayla Scott-Beyerlein and Trent Ingram

Miami University Middletown has announced the ninth group of inductees into its athletic Hall of Fame, which honors student athletes, coaches, teams and others who have brought recognition and honor to the University during the past 48 years. Induction ceremonies for the new class will take place on Saturday, Jan. 24 at Miami Middletown and will feature a dinner catered by the Montgomery Inn.

The 2015 class of inductees includes Trent Ingram (1999-2001) basketball, Kayla Scott-Beyerlein (2003-2006) volleyball/women's tennis, Elaine Stephenson (1976-1979) women's basketball and Jeff Stiver (1975-1977) men's basketball/baseball.

"Over the past four decades, Miami Middletown has been fortunate to have wonderful student athletes who have been dedicated to MUM and to the competitive athletic spirit we have here," said Director of Student Athletics Cheryl Miller. "This class of inductees represents the true spirit of being a student athlete. Their lives have enriched their communities and all those around them. We are honored to be able to recognize them for their contributions."

Miami Middletown's teams have won the Ohio Regional Campus Conference (ORCC) All-Sports Award 16 times, including 11 times consecutively (1994-2004). The ORCC is made up of 11 schools, including many of the regional campuses of Ohio State, Ohio University, University of Akron, Wright State and Miami. Miami Middletown fields teams in baseball, women's softball, men's and women's basketball, golf, men's and women's tennis and volleyball.

The induction ceremony on Jan. 24 will begin with hors d'oeuvres at 5 p.m followed by dinner at 6 p.m. and the induction ceremony at 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend this event, which will be held in Miami Middletown's Campus Community Center.

Cost for the event is $35, with all proceeds going to benefit the Greg Lansaw Scholarship Fund and Miami Middletown Athletics. Lansaw, who lost his battle with cancer, was the ThunderHawk golf coach from 2001-2004.
