The Wayne County Historical Association is inducting four new members to the Wall of Fame, including Linda Burroughs of Fordham House; the late William Milas Reinhardt, educator; the late Dr. Deleon Edward Best; and the late John Allen Farfour, a member of the N.C. Tennis Hall of Fame.

A reception will be held on Sept. 27 at 5 p.m., by invitation only, at the museum at 116 N. William St.

A six-member selection committee with members from all over Wayne County picked the four from among 60 names that various members of the community have submitted since 2002.

A selection committee usually picks two new Wall of Fame inductees every other year. But that was not done in 2004, and the current committee selected four this time.
