Fallsburg’s Lisa McAdoo Selected for Clarion University Sports Hall of Fame
Fallsburg Central School District is proud to announce that Character Education Coordinator and Fallsburg High School Alumna Ms. Lisa McAdoo has earned induction into the Clarion University Sports Hall of Fame. She will join four others in the Class of 2018 at a ceremony at the Gemmell Center Multi-Purpose Room at Payne Street and Wilson Avenue in Clarion, Pennsylvania on May 4, 2018 at 7 PM. The event is open to the public.

Lisa McAdoo, the Golden Eagles first 1,000 point scorer in women’s basketball, was responsible for helping turn around a losing women’s basketball program to a championship team during her days at Clarion from 1985 – 88. New head coach Doris Black recruited McAdoo from Fallsburg (N.Y.) high school after she earned team MVP honors in 1984.

McAdoo posted 1,010 career points and 629 rebounds, both #1 in the program when she graduated. She also had 177 career steals. Following graduation Lisa had a 25 ½ year work career with the Federal Bureau of Prisons and retired in February of 2016. She is currently Character Education Coordinator in the Fallsburg Central School District and is the founder and operator of More Than Music DJ Institute, LLC – Philadelphia.

Lisa McAdoo is especially beloved by the Fallsburg girls and boys basketball teams and cheerleaders. She is at games and practices mentoring and hugging the young students. She is truly someone who gained much from her education at Fallsburg and Clarion, and she is grateful to be able to give back to the young people from the community of her childhood. Clarion has chosen well to acclaim her a Hall of Famer.
