TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (February 26, 2003) – Windy (Taff) Jones, a former student-athlete at Tallahassee Community College and Florida State University, is one of four individuals who will be selected for induction into the Tallahassee Community College Hall of Fame. The ceremony is on Thursday, April 24 at the Ramada Inn North at 7 p.m.
Jones, a member of TCC’s 1994 National Championship team, played softball with the Eagles from 1993-95. After a standout prep career at Wakulla High School, she signed with coach Maria Mendoza’s Eagles. After graduating from TCC, Jones played at Florida State University, where she earned a degree in physical education. She is currently the head softball coach at Leon High School, where she is in her fifth season with the Lions.
The 2003 class is comprised of two former student-athletes, a chief executive, and a member of the support staff. The Hall of Fame was established in 2002 and this year’s class marks the second group of individuals to be inducted.
Dr. James H. Hinson, former TCC president (1983-95); athletic trainer (1991-2001); and Eddie Zeremba, baseball (1990-92); and Jones are the 2003 inductees.
“This is an outstanding group of people that accentuates what Eagle athletics is all about,” said Brian Anweiler, TCC athletic director. “These individuals laid the foundation for the success our student-athletes and coaches are enjoying today.”
Last year, current baseball coach Mike McLeod and former head coaches Mike Gillespie (men’s basketball), Maria Mendoza (softball), and Jan Piatnik (women’s basketball) comprised the inaugural Hall of Fame class.
Tickets are now on sale at the TCC Athletic Department for $25 and checks can be made out to the TCC Foundation, memo “TCC Eagle Boosters.” For more information call 850-201-6085.
