The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame today announced that NBA star Grant Hill of the Phoenix Suns has been elected to the Board of Governors for a three-year term. He is the first active player to ever serve on the Hall of Fame's Board. He will serve as one of 22 members of the Board of Governors, which is chaired by Jerry Colangelo.
Hill believes exposure to the arts is significant to that preparation. That's why he signed on to be campaign spokesperson for The Choice is Art, a four-year statewide campaign by the Arizona Commission on the Arts to promote access to arts education.
