GREEN BAY – Ten finalists have been named in the search for the 26th member of the Packers FAN Hall of Fame.
“The first professional football team to have a hall of fame, the Green Bay Packers enhanced that distinction in 1998 by establishing a Packers FAN Hall of Fame,” a Packers release stated.
“It was founded for the purpose of annually honoring a devout and longtime Packers fan.”
Packers fans were asked to nominate themselves or a friend for the honor with an essay of 500 words or less, accompanied by a photo, explaining why he or she should be recognized.
From those nominations, the following finalists were picked by the Packers FAN Hall of Fame selection committee:

• Angela Kuemmel, Cleveland, Ohio

• Bruce Roehsner, Menomonee Falls
• Terry Sportsman, Elgin, Ill.
• Ken Stofen, Sturgeon Bay
Fans can read the finalists’ profiles and vote online by visiting packers.com/fhof.
The winner will be selected by Packers fans, as well as the selection committee.
The voting deadline is Wednesday, Jan. 31, at 11:59 p.m.
“Voters will be entered into a random drawing to win Packers merchandise,” the release added.
The honoree’s selection will be announced in late February 2024.
He or she will receive four club seats to a 2024 Packers home game, four pre-game sideline passes, four passes to the Packers Hall of Fame, custom Packers jersey, a $500 Packers Pro Shop gift certificate and a one-year subscription to PackersNews.com.
