Charleston, SC – The Charleston RiverDogs and Boeing will host their first Hall of Honor induction ceremony of 2023 prior to Wednesday night’s Boeing Military Appreciation Night at The Joe. The ceremony will recognize 1st Lieutenant Brooke Jackson Kahn of the United States Army and Colonel (retired) Judith Hughes of the United States Air Force as the eighth class of inductees.
The Hall of Honor is an integral piece of Boeing and the RiverDogs joint military appreciation platform, which aims to honor and celebrate military families in the Lowcountry through various recognition programs. The team inducted two classes, with two inductees per class, during the first two years of the program. For the first time, in 2022, three classes were inducted into the Hall of Honor. Three more classes, totaling six individuals, will be inducted throughout the 2023 campaign.
At each Boeing Military Appreciation Night a minimum of two inductees will be enshrined into the Hall of Honor. A community military committee chooses the inductees from a long list of nominees, including many who are nominated through the Hall of Honor’s public nomination link.
All inductees will be recognized on the field on a Military Appreciation Night, and will have their story told on the RiverDogs’ Hall of Honor web site.
The ceremony will take place on the field at The Joe at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 17 prior to that night’s 7:05 first pitch against the Delmarva Shorebirds. Media members are invited to attend.
