Being inducted into the USAG Region 8 Gymnastics Hall of Fame is an honor I humbly accept on behalf of the entire family that is Salem Gymnastics. The camaraderie of our athletes, booster club and coaching staff makes Salem Gymnastics an incredible place to work. Just as I learned from outstanding coaches, judges, and my right hand man, Tim Lucas, I look forward to mentoring the next generation of Salem to be bigger and better. I am grateful to have the Salem Gymnastics name forever in the Region 8 Gymnastics Hall of Fame. – Kenny Morphis, Co-Owner, Salem Gymnastics
