The BCAM Hall of Honor was established in 1994 to honor those persons who have helped to improve basketball in Michigan. These honorees have been longtime supporters of their local teams or have given outstanding service to the game of basketball. Awards are given in four categories: Officials, Media, Assistant Coach and Friend of Basketball.
In 2000, John Kirk was inducted into the BCAM Hall of Honor.
Just as basketball is a multi-dimensional game, John Kirk has had a wide reaching impact on the game. From an administrator to teacher of the game. John has affected the lives of many young people in a positive manner.
John began his career as a registered official in 1964 and is still active as an official today. His expertise as an official earned him the job of Commissoner of the Saginaw Valley Conference in basketball, football, and wrestling, a capacity in which he still serves. Other supervisory positions John has served include supervisor for women's junior college basketball in the Eastern Conference since 1980, supervisor for basketball for the GLIAC Conference in 1995 and as the Camp Director for high school and college officials at Central Michigan University since 1995.
