The Mississippi Community and Junior Collage Sports Hall of Fame was conceived in the intrest of recognizing coaches and athletes who have coached and/or played in one or more of Mississippi's public community or junior colleges. Acknowleding the fact that there have been many outstanding athletes who have contributed greatly to the successful sports programs throughout the two-year college system, the Mississippi Association of Community & Junior Colleges (MACJC) began a program of recognition in 2007 whereby individuals may be recognized for their contributions to the tremendous success of community & junior college sports in Mississippi. 

The By-Laws for the Mississippi Community & Junior College Sports Hall of Fame were considered and approved by the MACJC at its annual athletic meeting on January 23, 2007 and were amended by the MACJC on August 26, 2008. These By-Laws established the framework to recognize indvidual athletes/coaches for their athletic achievements. 

45 individuals were inducted as Charter Members in 2007, 30 were inducted in 2008, and 15 have been inducted each subsequent year. 2017 was the Eleventh Class of the Mississippi Community and Junior College Sports Hall of Fame.
