Greetings to all Greater Columbus Basketball Legends Association (GCBLA)
Hall of Famers (HOF)
It is my honor and privilege reach out to you as the new President of the GCBLA. For some of you I realize it’s been some time but believe me, we have not forgotten you. My name is G. Ajamú Brown. I’m a lifetime resident of Columbus, Ohio and graduated from Linmoor JH; The OSU University HS; attended Central State University; and received my BA/MA from The Ohio State University. Sports is one of the major foundations of my life development and I’m grateful and proud to have accomplished major success. I’m also a Military Vet and served in the US Army (Vietnam Vet) /Air Force Reserves. I’m honored to be a part of such a prestigious organization and it’s my intention to continue to raise the level of integrity that it deserves.
I joined GCBLA in 2020 under the leadership of the founding members Skip Young and Dr. John Howard. And for you who may not be aware our dear brother Skip passed in March of this year. It has been challenging but we are determined to keep this vision alive and growing. We have every intention to make yourselves, and our community, proud of the institution that you are all a part of. We believe you are a very important part of who we are and its imperative that we continue this journey together.
As we move forward, we expect to be challenged with needing resources to do the work, and continue our work in the community. We’re making an effort to help support community organizations, especially those serving our you. Many look up to us, especially when it comes to basketball related activities. Then it is our intent to have our Annual HOF Enshrinement Ceremony, like we had for you, your families, and your friends. Celebrating you for your hard work is a blessing to us all. And it makes our community proud. However, to be able to do anything we need financing and support. We are doing fundraisers and applying for various grants, however, as you may know, funds are not as available as they once were. We’re doing like most organizations and institutions, we’re asking OUR GCBLA ALUMNI. We want our Alumni for help us achieve our goals. We are a NON-PROFIT organization and no one is receiving a salary to do the work. WE have a proud passionate group of volunteers willing to be a blessing to others because we realize that we have been blessed ourselves. So, we give back. We’re asking for your help. Thank you.
