The Connecticut Hall of Fame, established in 2005 to recognize the outstanding achievements of people from Connecticut, has four new members.
Former Connecticut men's basketball coach Jim Calhoun and UConn women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma were inducted Wednesday. Auriemma says it's a great honor to represent the players and coaches in the program.
The pair were inducted on Wednesday along with Roger Sherman and toy maker A.C. Gilbert, known for creating the erector set. Sherman, a founding father who helped draft the Declaration of Independence, moved to New Milford at the age of 22. He served two non-consecutive terms in the state House in the 1700s.
