Throughout the course of the 2008-2009 academic year, we will seek to recognize some of the great names of the past to highlight the heritage of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association in honor of the Association’s 95th anniversary. In this edition we are pleased to recognize Herman Hines of Reidsville.
Herman Hines has touched just about every base one could during his long career related to athletics.
A graduate of Darden High and a 1950 graduate of then North Carolina College, Hines embarked on a career in education that saw him teach, serve as a principal and even serve on the school board, all in his home area of Reidsville.
In athletics, he also made his mark serving as a game official at both the high school and collegiate levels for many years. Hines was a booking agent in basketball for the NCHSAA and then served a supervisor of officials, helping recruit and train officials.
Hines has been honored by induction in both the North Carolina Central University Hall of Fame (1985) and the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association Officials Hall of Fame (1997). He was inducted into the NCHSAA Hall of Fame in 2001.
