“Every year it's exciting to see new athletes and coaches honored for bringing recognition to the City of Chandler,” said Nate Meyers, a Chandler Sports Hall of Fame Committee member who has worked with the event since 2010. “This year offers a variety of talents, including our first handball player, an MLB Rookie of the Year, a third overall pick in the NFL draft, a homegrown talent ready to make waves with the Arizona Diamondbacks, and a coach with more than 500 career wins.”
Located at Tumbleweed Park, Celebration Plaza honors service organizations and a select group of residents, living or deceased, for their civic leadership, public outreach, personal service and commitment to the community. Each year, the public can nominate up to two individuals and/ or organizations to be permanently recognized. Nominations for Celebration Plaza have closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted a person or organization worthy of recognition.
