NWAC Hall of Fame


Joyce Halsey

Joyce Halsey

Columbia Basin College
Class of 1990

Joyce Halsey may not have been a coach at CBC, but her service, enthusiasm, and devotion to the CBC Athletic department was far greater than most of those who spent their time on the field.

In 1990, Halsey was recognized for her dedication to athletics and was inducted into the NWAACC Hall of Fame. Halsey was hired as the secretary for the Athletic and Physical Education departments at CBC in January 1963. But acting as the secretary wasn’t Halsey’s only duty; she did much of the work that is now distributed among many people in the Athletic department. Halsey was the stand-in mother for many athletes that were far from home. She often had them over for dinner, holidays, and she treated them like her own children. In fact, the students loved Halsey so much, that during halftime of the championship football game, she was asked to come down to the field where the team surprised her by dedicating their winning year to her.
